This marks the introduction to a new series: Solar Signatures These works will be created without a camera or a lens, but are original photographs on paper, straight from the heart of our Mother. I hope you enjoy.
New Body of Work: Solar Signatures
Cyanotypes on Watercolor Paper
(Pricing and Invidividually Titled Descriptions available November28, 2020)
The day brought us rain and a southerly wind. Just enough sun filtered through the clouds to provide me the ability to experience the glimmers, shadows and reflections that grace us. The sun paints this planet, brings us rainbows and all life joyfully receives a moment to dazzle. My gratefulness for the light and warmth of the sun and the healing and humbleness brought to me by this force of the sea has me diving deeper into my work, striving to encapsulate this emotion.
I would like to surrender to the mystery and sacredness of our planet by allowing the elements of nature become center stage. I will arrive unencumbered and join in the symphony of my surroundings.
I returned from the beach today with this camera-less impression on paper, impossible without the light of our sun and the movement of the sea, an original Wainui Beach signature.
Original Sizes: A3, A4 and A5
MEDIUM: Original Cyanotype on Watercolor Paper or Fine Art Print
FINE ART PRINT DETAILS: Archival inkjet print
INK: Archival Epson UltraChrome K3™ ink
PAPER 100% cotton, museum quality, 308gsm, matte finish
MAPLE WOOD PRINT DETAILS:
Maple Wood Prints are printed directly on to 1/2" thick maple surfaced wood board, for a warm and natural-looking print that is also eco-friendly. Each wood print is unique and no two prints will look precisely alike. No framing necessary, wood float hanging hardware and cleat included for flush to the wall art.
A white ink underlay is printed under the image area to make the true colors of your image pop, while still allowing the beautiful wood texture to show on the print surface.
Border Options: All Maple Wood Prints will be created without borders.
If you would prefer a border, please specify when placing order (no price change for either option):
-No border: Please specify "NO BORDER" (example: Rockport View, No Border)
-With Border = 3/4" border- showing natural maple around image: Please specify "YES BORDER" (example: Rockport View, Yes Border)
Wood prints cannot be shipped to PO Boxes.
Fine Art Canvas Wraps are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas material using high-quality archival inks. Lustre Laminate is applied to each piece to protect the surface of the print.
The image is mirror wrapped around the edges so none of the original photograph is lost to wrapping on the sides.
Canvas wraps are ready to hang on the wall right out of the box, and can also be displayed propped on a mantle or bookshelf.
Please provide a street address, Canvas Gallery wraps cannot be shipped to PO Boxes.
CUSTOM SIZING: If you'd like to see any photograph as a custom size, please send me a note and I will create a sample and post it here in my store for you.
FLOAT FRAMING: Solid wood float frames available upon request, custom listing will be created. Float Frames are available in black, white, gold, pewtter, silver, barnwood or whitewashed barnwood. Float frames are mounted with a space between the frame and the Canvas Wrap, so that your print appears to be floating within the frame. Float frames currently available for shipping within the U.S only.
***Encaustic Panels are not available at this time, I am currently living abroad without my encaustic supplies, stay tuned...
I create each Encaustic Photography panel with my original fine art photographs, beeswax and pigment. Each art piece is created from start to finish by hand in my home studio. Encaustic Photography panels are able to be placed on a shelf or hung on a wall with just a nail or two. If you don't see the size you'd like, I am happy to customize both Encaustic Photography and Fine Art Print sizing for you.
All prints are created with Professional, Archival Photographic paper to last a lifetime. I offer two paper choices:
~ Matte Paper with a beautiful, smooth and lusterless surface
~ Metallic Paper with a three-dimensional, high definition quality with a stunning pearlescent finish.
Fine Art Prints are measured in inches and may not include borders, unless requested, up to size 14x21". Larger prints will be borderless.
Please note that all square print sizes will be cropped to suit best composition for each image, as shown in preview.
*** Please note, prints larger than 14x21 are printed in a professional lab that I've trusted for years. Photo transfers larger than 14x21 will also be printed locally, but will be hand transferred by me in my studio with the same process as smaller sizes.
