Flores de mango

Mango Flowers

Puerto Vallarta’s Los Muertos Beach is teaming with vendors. Usually, I say, “No gracias” to their wares. How do you say no to a Coca-Cola crate filled with these tempting hand-carved Mango flowers?

Go ahead I dare you to take a bite. POP! The cool, sweet syrup runs down your chin

Refreshing playful mango flowers. Fill your life with the light, sweetness, and the joy of a Mexican beach!

México is my adopted home. I love its colors, beauty, vibrant life. And people, so kind, welcoming and humble. And industrious. I admire their ability to create something beautiful from seems like nothing. They will weave a palm frond into a bracelet or a hat. Peel and carve mangos into delicious flowers on a stick. Women clustered under the bridge, expertly shaping mango flowers for the family to sell. They are sold for 90 pesos and are so sweet and delicious. Their husbands carry the flowers in Coca-Cola crates with fresh watermelon, cucumber and jicama. They walk on the hot sand, dressed in white protecting them from the sun.

There is always a shaker of chile to add heat to the cool fruit. Mexianos like it “dulce y picante.”

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!
