Aloe

Vallarta Jardín Bontánico

It was a steamy summer afternoon at the world-famous Vallarta Botanical Gardens.  A spiky aloe is surviving the heat, tossing graphic shadows that vibrate with energy, grabbing your attention.  This ain’t your grandmother’s botanical print.  Unless granny is hot and spiky.

I take trips to the extraordinary Vallarta Jardín Botánico often. It is a favorite place to stimulate my creativity. I am not alone. USA Today named it one of its Readers’ Choice “10 Best” Gardens in North America. I visit seasonally for inspiration and to have lunch in the wonderful restaurant.

This spiky aloe was tucked away, a hidden treasure.  There is such much beauty to absorb at the Garden.

It was summer and the sun was bright, bright, bright.  The shadows created graphic images on each spike.  I even included the wire that supported a nearby vine.  I seek imperfection in my work.  When I studied art, I had a teacher who called them happy accidents. I keep the happy accidents that are captured in my photographs that inspire my finished images.  Who wants perfection?

Fine Art Paper Finishing

Unless otherwise requested, all fine art paper prints will come with a one-inch border for ease of framing.   If you don’t want a border, let me know.  The art looks beautiful without a border “floated” (placed on top) of matte board. 

There are several options with deckled edge which should be floated on a matte.  Please contact me to discuss the options.

Canvas Stretching

I print on two types of canvas, matte finish (an elegant, smooth flat finish) and gloss finish (shinier and reflective).  In general, I prefer the matte finish.  These can be thin stretched on ¾ inch stretcher bars.  They can be hung unframed or framed.  Some pieces can be gallery wrapped where the image wraps around the side.  Or the side can be white, black or a complimentary color that I usually choose to go with the artwork.  There are other options.  You can have the canvas stretched over 1.5 inch stretcher bars, a dramatic look. 

Metal Prints

The metal prints have the look of a plexiglass or acrylic print and are more economical.

The Metal Print with a Float Hanger  

The surface white Gloss Metal Prints has a white base to maximize color and contrast. Its high gloss surface provides a metallic look while preserving the white points in an image. Final product should display high level luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

Metal Silver Gloss

The surface has a clear metallic base providing a true metallic look. Higher gloss surface allowing a more silver appearance. Provides a maximum luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

I am happy to provide advice on framing and can help you with this process.  Contact me.  I love to work with my clients!
