Green Mangos

Mango verdes
Biblioteca Los Mangos
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico

Lush mango trees envelop the charming Biblioteca Los Mangos in Las Gaviotas Colonia. It is a rich resource—the only public library on the Bay of Banderas.

The shade of enormous mango trees and banana plants provides a cool respite from the heat of the day. The huge mango trees were heavy with fruit. The vines and leaves holding the clustered treasures tight in an abstract package.

When ripe, take a juicy bite: a sweet and perfumed mango, the taste of the tropics.

Biblioteca Los Mangos is a special place. As I said above, it is the only public library in the Costa Banderas area. The grounds are beautiful filled Mango trees, banana plants and ginger flowers. In the shade are a torta shop and a preschool.

The library has a wonderful film series – classic Mexican and international films and the best of old Hollywood. The library is charming, wooden tables and chairs and fans keeping the large room cool. You expect to see Marian, the librarian, from The Music Man appear from behind the stacks of books.

Back to these green mangos. I have never seen trees this large. To hold the huge clusters of mangos, a kind of webbing grows to keep them from falling. Fascinating.

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!
