Beach Boy

Children love to dig in the sand, make sandcastles or create big holes. This is my beach boy, my son, digging in the sands of the Bay of Banderas in Puerto Vallarta. It is based on a photograph, one of the hundreds I have of him digging on beaches worldwide. He’s wearing his cool new surfer swimsuit. Nearby is a graphic beach towel over the lounge chair where I reclined before I snapped this picture.

I bet you have a special beach boy or girl in your life. Remember the bucolic days of the warm sun, salt air, and your child digging in the sand.

Fine Art Paper
Fine Art Paper Deckled Edge
Matte Canvas Thin Stretched

This is one of several prints in my collection where the edges of image fade to white. These pieces can be printed on Hahnemühle fine art paper and finished with a deckled edge. This beautiful paper has the texture of the fine watercolor paper. The deckled edge (torn edge) creates the look of handmade watercolor paper. If you frame the piece “floating on top of a contrasting matte. The beautiful deckled edge will make the print very special.

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!
