Los Arcos Vista

The View of Los Arcos (The Arches)

This is the southern view from my terazza (terrace).

The Bay of Banderas is surrounded on three sides by mountains. There are many inlets on the southside with wonderful beach communities, some available only by boat.

The moisture can rise from the ocean creating a fog or haze that obscures the mountains and create solid colors slowly becoming paler as you come to the opening of the Bay. This creates an ever-changing view. Ever-changing beauty.

This piece is especially beautiful printed on deckled (torn-edged) fine art paper. This creates the look of handmade watercolor paper and looks especially floated on a matte in a simple frame.

The Bay of Banderas is a wonder, a marine mammal preserve. The Bay which rests between two states Nayarit and Jalisco cooperating to protect the sea life and the natural beauty of the bay. Humpback Whales arrive every December to mate and give birth, leaving some time in early April. The warm waters are the perfect environment for these large mammals. The University of Guadalajara has a Marine Mammal institute to study whales, dolphins, and turtles. Los Arcos rise from one of the deepest parts of the Bay. There is wonderful deep-sea diving around the huge rocks. Many sea birds make Los Arcos their home nesting there for protection.

I take special joy in observing them every day and at various times during the day. Every glimpse is unique and beautiful.

I want to reiterate that this is another print that is beautiful on fine art paper with a deckled edge. The torn edge mimics watercolor paper and the texture of this elegant paper makes these pelicans look mighty fine.

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!
