Did you see one of my works at a Retail Location? Feel Free to contact me about having one created for you, presentation can be customized to your needs. Limited Edition Giclees are available for many works and is the preferred methodology of high quality reproduction of art at an affordable price. I have the ability to print a Giclee to a maximum size of 16 x 36 (canvas or photo giclee's on luster or metallic papers ) . For reproductions larger than this , I work with a local professional printer .
A Giclee is defined as: Archival pigment inks printed on archival substrates ( i.e. paper or canvas). The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and provides better color accuracy and longevity than other means of reproduction . It is considered a museum quality print. .
Giclees are being offered on many of my pieces, most are limited to a run of 50 or less. Each receives multiple coats of a UV acrylic finishing spray. Should you desire a Giclee in the form of an unframed watercolor or archival print for you to frame - please inquire about price based on size and substrate.
Embellished Giclee: Canvas Giclees are sealed with a UV varnish , then hand painted touches - usually textured - so that the giclee gives a close approximation to the original painting textural qualities. Each Giclee embellishment is slightly different due to the nature of the hand application process and can be customized by request. Items can be added , a cork , a family pet , as requested.
Giclees . Presentation under glass requires matting & can be done to match your color scheme and preferred colors . We have some framed Giclee's available with matting and frames designed to compliment the individual piece. Canvas Giclees can be purchased framed or as a gallery wrap canvas unframed . Depth of canvas can be determined by the purchaser. Please inquire as to pricing . Examples: Gallery wrapped canvas - 1 1/2 inches deep for display without frame - embellished texturally where appropriate , 16 x 20 $165 , 16 x 36 $185 ; 24 x 36 $300; 36 x 48 $400
Alternative method for Giclee presentation: The artwork is printed on treated archival canvas or paper with Epson pigmented inks and mounted to primed and sealed High Density Fiber board. The Giclee is sealed with multiple coats of sealer, embellished and textured as needed. It then is mounted into a custom wood "floating " frame or traditional open wood frame. This is a more contemporary look - allowing the artwork to be displayed without glass and in a greater variety of environments . Examples of Current pricing is : 12 x 18 $145 ; 16 x 36 $225
Please contact me for further information, custom work , pricing or viewing of a specific piece of artwork not available at my Retail Locations. Do remember that artwork can be sized and created to meet your space requirements. I have altered artwork when making a Giclee to customize a wine label or altered colors to match decor. Inquire and I can let you know what is possible and what is not . I can add text to to the Giclee (or original) if you would like a special saying incorporated into the work, the addition of a pet , the possibilities are endless .
