Calendar Pin-Ups


I've been asked many times if any of the 12 images of my paintings in my 2017 Calendar can be purchased. Four of the original paintings are still for sale, and most of those shown on the calendar are available as prints. I've made an inventory and list it here, along with links to each painting in my online gallery so you can find out more about any image which interests you.

You'll notice information about the prints with each listing below. I make prints of my paintings in order to make affordable reproductions in a variety of sizes, and to make each painting available to more people (including me!)

I create two different types of prints from my art, and you can read the details about each at the end of this post. My originals and prints on paper are matted to separate the art from touching any surfaces and, most often, placed under clear plexiglas (plexi weighs less than glass and, of course, is less breakable.) My originals and prints on canvas do not need matting or glazing, so they are in simply in complementary frames, and all the canvas surfaces are sealed with a protective and UV block clear coat. Many of my prints are also available unframed, protected in clear bags. Most are in sizes which fit precut mats and ready made frames, making it easy for you to frame them yourself to fit your decor.

MY PRINTS
  • GICLEE:  A "giclee" (pronounced 'zhee-clay' or 'gee-clay') is the finest quality fine art digital print. It is museum-quality and I limit the number in each edition I create. I individually sign and number each print, and provide a Certificate of Authenticity. Technically, giclee prints are created by very high end ink-jet printers, with up to 12 pigmented fade-resistant inks. Many of these printers can reproduce art several feet wide and any height. The surfaces on which the inks are printed are of the highest quality, including acid-free longevity papers. Giclees are the closest reproductions to the original art, and their cost is higher than other types of prints due to all the high-end production steps. I have giclees produced both on paper (which is very close to the watercolor papers I paint on) and also on canvas, which I often use in my acrylic paintings. Like any artwork on paper, giclees on paper should be protected under glass or plexiglas and kept out of direct light in order to reduce the chance of fading. It is often difficult even for me to tell which is the original and which is a giclee print!
  •  OPEN EDITION: My "open edition" prints are produced on color laser printers. The reproduction is very close to my original paintings. This is a less costly process than giclee printing, thus the price of the prints is less.
