What is Giclee?

 

The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb giclee meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclee, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process spraying microscopic pigment-based inks with high-quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness, and stability. These Giclée prints are capable of producing an extremely wide tonal range and color gamut.

 

These watercolor images are signed and numbered on archival paper.

 

Certificate of authenticity included, along with an artist biography.

 

Can the size change?

 

Large prints can be made smaller.

The proportion of the art will stay the same, for example, a horizontal rectangle 30 x 36” becomes a 15 x 18” rectangle.

 

Small prints are available in the size stated.

 

Do I frame a Giclee Print?

Giclée prints are printed on paper and will need to be framed.

Will you frame the painting for me?

Certainly. I will use the service of a local custom frame shop professional.

Most of my paintings are framed in a simple black frame, letting the art take center stage.

The price varies according to the size of the art.

Two additional weeks are needed to hire this service.

The frame will make the painting larger which increases the shipping fees. Simply ask me for a quote.

Can you ship it?

Yes! Giclée prints are sent rolled in a tube.

How can I be sure I love it enough to buy it?

 

To be sure it's "love at first buy," you only need ONE of these three reasons:
 

1.    Does the painting spark a memory, reminding you of happiness from years gone by?

2.    Does it make you smile and your heart feel lighter?

3.    Do the colors bring you peace? Are you refreshed by the greens, or do you feel comforted by a commonality of beige and browns?
