Dreams of Paradise

There are places where Monk Seals and Sea Turtles come ashore and occasionally rest beside each other. Monk seals will snuggle up to anything as I learned the first time I slept on the beach outside my tent on Laysan Island in the Northwest Hawaiian chain. This painting was inspired by a photograph taken by George Balazs, Hawaiian sea turtle expert. The original photograph can be seen in the book I authored called The Hawaiian Monk Seal. It was a cloudy shot that I recomposed with a Honu I saw at Punaluʻu Beach, Big Island, Hawaiʻi. I painted the scene with a sunset setting. It was a great challenge to create the multi colored sunset reflections on the animals.

 

MATTED PRINTS

The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual printed picture. Matted prints are measured by outside mat dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard-sized frames.

*Note that the actual picture size will be smaller than the mat size and may vary in shape depending on the shape of the original painting.

 

FULL-SIZE PRINTS

Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14”, or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than that of a matted print.

 

GICLÉE

Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas, then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.

 

GALLERY WRAP GICLÉE

You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which adds an extra 1-5/8" all around, with an image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée and can be stretched at a frame shop near you, as a contemporary option to framing.
