Stone Lion

Enhanced Photograph

León de Piedra

This lion resides at the Vallarta Botantical Garden, one of a pair.

As I played with the image he came to life, graphic and fun.

Not to worry, he wouldn’t hurt a fly.

Fine Art Paper Velvet
Matte Canvas Thin Stretched
Metal Float Hanger

My art is original, mostly inspired by photographs I take with my point-and-shoot camera. The work can be painstaking, layer after transparent layers, like working with oil paint or watercolors. I frequently begin my workday by playing with photographs to loosen up. I make hundreds of these enhanced photos, most are discarded. But some are keepers. The Pixels section of my portfolio is a collection of this best work.

I take trips to the extraordinary Vallarta Jardín Botánico often. It is a favorite place to stimulate my creativity. I am not alone. USA Today named it one of its Readers’ Choice “10 Best” Gardens in North America. I visit seasonally for inspiration and to have lunch in the wonderful restaurant.

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!
