Celebrate with Giclee Prints



Autumn Celebration Continues


First I want to show you the progress on the diptych.  If you will recall I was talking about the xenoliths that are starting to appear in the painting.  This photo shows you what has happened with the xenoliths as I add high lights and low lights:



 I am still working on this painting, so come back to the blog to see additional photos of progress.


Now back to the Fall Celebration:



   Oak Leaf Print (Fall Leaves V) matted and framed.  Outside frame dimensions:  11.5" x 13"
 Normal pricing 100.  October Price: 50. with the frame!

Because I offer 24 of my original paintings in Giclee Print,  I get asked, repeatedly, "what is a giclee"?  The easy answer is:   absolutely the best, highest quality, museum quality, art printing available today.

The Definition : Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt". 

The Term : The term  "giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. 


The Quality : The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. 


                                                                                     


Oak Leaf (Fall Leaves V) giclee print 16" x 12" normally 150.
October pricing:  75.00




Frequently I hold a giclee print next to the original to demonstrate the quality of the print.  It is very difficult to tell the print from the original.  And  because it is a print, it is an affordable way to purchase and own wonderful art.  


And that is what you can do this month, with even less expense, due to my Autumn Celebration with 50% reduced prices on all Fall Leaf paintings and prints.
