Ventana al Pacifico

Window to the Pacific

The fishing guide attempts to hold the tiny boat steady in the rough waters of the Sea of Cortez. We are dangerously close to the spot where the Sea of Cortez waters crashes into the Pacific. It’s rocky. We are looking through a mystical cave that opens on a vast ocean that continues for 6,000 miles before colliding with the continent of Asia.

The light is going crazy — strobing while I attempt a rocky snapshot.

I start to stand. I am unsteady. Mi amigo Hector grabs hold and pulls me back.

Unsettled and a bit frightened, I decided to create art that expresses emotion, not reality.

Reality can be scary.
Emotion opens the heart.
El corazón.

I first journeyed to Los Cabos – San Lucas and San Jose in 1984. It was deserted, its unique beauty of desert meets the ocean creating a stunning, magical landscape. I recently returned to find that it has been discovered, filled with tourists enjoying the rare splendor. I returned recently to spent the day with a friend in Lover’s Beach, Playa de los Enamorados. It was a beautiful day of exploring and photo-taking. My husband and I first visited this beach immediately after I produced The Groundlings entry into the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival, Olympic Trials: A Chick Hazard Mystery, an improvised murder starring the incomparable Phil Hartman. We were bone tired and Baja replenished our soul. We stayed at The Twin Dolphins which alas no longer exists. We spent most of a magical day at Lovers’ Beach alone. Later we were joined by Sam Elliott and Katherine Ross on their honeymoon in Los Cabos. There was plenty of room on the beach for two sets of lovers.

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!
