Nature Boy

He came in a dream. I awoke and Nat King Cole was singing “Nature Boy.” Such a beautiful, mysterious song. I saw this image and immediately went to work.

I love the last line of the song:
“The greatest thing
You’ll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return”

* This song has a fascinating history. Look for the longer copy below to learn more.

“Nature Boy” was Nat King Cole’s first bonafide hit. Recorded in 1947, written by eden ahbez (yes, all lowercase). He was a hippy before there were hippies. He approached Nat King Cole’s manager at a concert and was rebuffed. He then went to Cole’s valet who promised to get the sheet music to Cole. Nat King Cole was so taken with the song that he immediately recorded it. But, eden ahbez was nowhere to be found. Eventually, they discovered him camping under the Hollywood sign. Finally eden ahbez signed on the dotted line and they were able to release the recording.

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!
