Limit Edition Giclée Print
Limited Edition of 1000 prints
I took a series of photos of this abandoned farmhouse in north central Illinois. Local kids had been slowly tearing down this once proud Victorian home. The original photo lacks any color. I took this colorful approach to bring life back into the old house. You could actually see right through the house and out the back. Four door frames and a window draw you into and through the painting. Here I experiment with flat saturated colors, and somewhat nontraditional approaches with watercolors. The transparency of the watercolors allowed me to create some unique color depth through layering.

What Is A Giclée Print?
This giclée print is currently the highest quality standard for printing limited edition prints. The term "giclée" (pronounced "ZHEE-CLAY") is a French word meaning "to spray." Giclée watercolor prints are created by spraying millions of droplets of ink onto archival watercolor paper. Prints are produced on state of the art printers, using an eight color pigmentation process with 100% archival inks. Giclée prints made with these wide-gamut pigmented inks are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fading. The growing recognition within the art community of the giclée print makes it a recognizable addition to my current artistic offerings.

What is a limited edition print?
Every limited print is signed and numbered by me. The prints are numbered in the order they are purchased with lowest numbers being issued first. Limited edition prints, signed and dated by the artist are generally more valuable to art buyers for the obvious reasons of limited supply. If the demand exceeds the availability of the art, the prices and desirability increases.
