Limit Edition Giclée Print Limited Edition of 1000 prints 2008 I wanted to try creating a completely different mood using the same technique as in Corncrib. I had this very strong silhouette of an old tree standing at the edge of a field in Michigan. I used to get up before sunrise and go for walks on the family farm. This was the feeling I was trying to capture here. I switched color palettes to feel the coolness of the morning mist. We used to look for owl pellets under these old trees, so I add the owl for the sentiment of Michigan summers.
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.
