Fire in the Blood

This is the cover for the first edition of the paperback original, first published in 1991.

Acrylic on crescent board, painted by Vito DeVito, who now specializes in fine art landscapes, sculpture, etc., with work featured in a number of private collections.

The photos here don't do the detailing on the painting justice. It's hair thin fine with almost photographic clarity, but done old school. This is long before digital "Photoshopping" appeared. This real painting by a master artist who knows his craft.

Included is a signed Certificate of Provenance from me. I'll need the name of the new owner to put on it.

Board and frame are 18 x 24 inches

Painting within coffin-shaped mat--just like on the book cover!--is 12 x 17 inches.

Originally purchased for $1,200.00.

Selling now for $625.00, USA only.

This one costs slightly less than the other two paintings because it will need a new mat cut. The present one was a temporary fix and then I never fixed it! The idea was to have space between the painting's surface and the glass, so they don't touch. It got the job done, but you'll want something nicer.

Price includes shipping for custom black metal frame and special non-reflective glass.

I can ship just the painting by itself for 600.00, however, by the time you buy your own frame and non-reflective glass it would cost more than 25.00.

If you live outside the US and wish to buy, contact me and I'll adjust the shipping and insurance rates to your country. Payment through Paypal, which takes care of currency conversion.
