Flower From A Smokestack is 12″ x 16″ screen print, fresh off the press. The imagery first appeared for a Billy Strings concert poster that was a fast sell out at the shows and online – so we are pleased to offer these new, smaller print editions. Since the editions are somewhat limited, some inventory will sold through this lottery as an alternative purchasing experience for those that tend to miss out on the online releases. The majority of the inventory will be sold in the Shop this Wednesday (4/20), with a few different drop times.


Prints are signed and numbered and there are a few editions available for this one. Of course there are a few subtle variations in ink within the editions as well…..some have birds that are more blue.

Main Edition of 200 on light blue stock. $55 + Shipping
(online Spusta Studio Shop Release set for 4/20 just after 4:25 pm pdt)


Dark Blue Variant of 150 on metallic stock (100% of proceeds to aid in the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, via Razom) $70 + shipping
(online Spusta Studio Shop Release set for 4/20 just after 9:20am pdt)


Gold Edition of 100 on metallic stock (Will be offered somehow through SpustaStash.com this Friday, April 22nd with 60% of sales going to Environmental Charities we have supported in the past.)

Black Edition of 60 – $110 + shipping
Most of these will be invoiced from this lottery…it may show up in the Shop at random times.

Mystery Variant Editions of 25 and 14 will randomly be inserted as bonuses with orders.

          Aloha !!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to own one of these prints … I can’t believe I won a spot in the lottery on my first time trying .. always wanted a spusta print and stoked to be able to get a gold version of the smokestacks.. can’t wait to frame it !!! .. knowing my money went to a really good cause makes it a win win ….. I feel good knowing I was able to contribute to saving wildlife

      The Gold is beautiful but the main Edition of light blue would match my Main Edition light blue of “The Sparrow” and frame together perfectly.

          Have to post twice because I’m an idiot and didn’t see gold wasn’t an option. Would love a main edition though, the blue really brings out the clouds.

    Gold please and thank you 🙂

    Nature’s first green is gold,
    Her hardest hue to hold.
    Her early leaf’s a flower;
    But only so an hour.
    Then leaf subsides to leaf.
    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.
    Nothing gold can stay.

    Ooh! I missed out when the show print was available and assumed I’d never get another chance. I just love this image, and as usual am finding it hard to choose a favorite! I guess I’ll pick the Main one, and thank you for the opportunity.

    I really like the main edition but I have a feeling the black will really pop, so despite the lowered chance of being picked, I gotta go for the black one!

    I would love a chance at the main blue print because I’d like to surprise my 8 year old with it on her wall. She loves sunflowers and her room is painted the same colors as the poster. The Billy Strings print was out of our range financially, but this would be perfect–thank you kindly for the opportunity.

    Main edition, please. Although the black is probably a more realistic vision of the future, the light blue seems more hopeful to me, and right now hope is good. Thanks for the chance.
