Catrina del mar

Catrina of the Sea

Catrina is singing a siren’s song, luring you into deeper water.

She is so beautiful, you will follow her into deeper water. Her salty glamor is too alluring.

Dia de los Muertos is an official holiday, now work, no school. It is the most soulful and joyous holiday I know. It celebrates and honors family, remembrance, and the sheer joy of living. Life is a continuum. We look to the past with love and humor. Welcome future lives and loves.

I get much of my inspiration for my Dia de los Muertos images from actual photographs that I take. Puerto Vallarta’s Malacon (beach boardwalk) is filled with enormous Day of the Dead figures and altars on the days leading up to November 2. I visit several times that week during different times of day to take photographs with my point-and-shoot camera. I then bring them to life, imagining them living, breathing and moving.

Matte Canvas Thin Stretched, Sunset Cotton Etching

Basic Material & Edge | Finish options below

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!
