Limit Edition Giclée Print
Limited Edition of 1000 prints
This was the painting that changed everything. Here starts “me.” What was it about this painting that broke from the past paintings? It starts with the original photo. The building was actually turquoise, maybe not as saturated, but it was turquoise. The other colors in the painting followed to balance this saturation. Purple replaced black. Purple, ochre, and turquoise became the foundation of many of my future paintings. The original color photo was taken at 6:30 AM on a Sunday morning in north central Illinois on one of my photo trips.
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.
