Safe Borders

La Tia Bar, Ajijic, Jalisco

It was a scorching hot day in Ajijic on Lake Chapala, the resort town outside Guadalajara.

La Tia Bar is a favorite neighborhood watering hole. It is easy to understand why. So welcoming! A United States, Canadian, and Mexican flag. Plus an “Amor! Amor! Amor!” poster.

The bar wasn’t open. The bright sun making it seem even darker despite the LED lights and electric “Public Drunkeness” sign.

Next time I am in Ajijic, I am stopping by La Tia for a drink and some friendly company.

Safe Borders has a pencil border that defines the image. There is a thin white border beyond the pencil line.  I can increase that by an inch for easy framing.  Or you can “float” the existing print on a darker matte.  Contact me for options.



*FREE SHIPPING: The price of the art piece includes USPS Priority Shipping, Parcel Post or Ground whichever is the least expensive. Contact me for other options."

I am fortunate to spend time in Ajijic. My art is represented by Calli Intramuros, Juan Galindo’s beautiful art gallery and home furnishing store. It is in a beautiful Spanish Colonial Home, with a glorious tropical garden. I encourage you to check out this wonderful store.

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!
