After the original painting is completed you have the option of having a series of prints produced for members to collect. Some stations have used this as a fund raise for there station or use as a year end gift. The artist Christopher Wheat, has been painting fire related art for over 11 years now and has painted a commemorative piece that hangs in the Governors mansion for the fire fighters of FDNY and 9/11.
