“Tangled” 8½ x 11″ print, does not include matte or frame but there is a white border around the painting so that a mat is not needed. These are what I call the economy prints and they have a built in white border to simulate a mat, they are $15 and will stay bright if kept out of the sunlight or under direct lights for several years. It’s important to me that art is affordable and attainable by everyone. Buying a print is a great way to get started in art collecting.
About the painting Tangled (Print): I’m always looking up into trees and finding tons of inspiration within them. This is a print of my original painting (sold) of a big old gnarly beech tree, it’s a giant really. I wanted to focus on the beautiful branches but also see the beautiful autumn foliage in the background. I love to paint trees and this one was a lot of fun. There are many beech trees on our property and they are such magnificent souls in our magical woods. I just love them and the more asymmetrical and “un-perfect” they are the better. As always, a little artistic license is thrown in.

About the printing paper grades:
Economy Prints: Economy prints are on mat 100 pound, bright white cotton paper. Care of prints require keeping them out of direct sunlight and artificial light. You will get the longest life from Economy prints if you frame them behind glass. They are meant to be vibrant and last a few years, and are a good way to decorate affordably or for gift giving. Currently, Economy prints are offered as 8½ x 11″ or smaller.
Upper Quality Prints: The next step up, photographic prints are matted for a 8×10 frame. Chromogenic color prints are full-color photographic prints made using chromogenic materials and processes, just like your photos you have processed. The print you will receive is matted and ready for you to take off the protective plastic sleeve and frame.They are $26 for the 8×10 and available also as a matted 11×14 (framed size) $44. Photographic prints are printed on acid free photographic paper and should last 75+ years if kept protected from direct light. Choice of white or black mat.
Kodak Supra Endura photographic paper has an extraordinary color gamut and state-of-the art image stability. I prefer two of the four papers available, one is the matte the other being the metallic.
Fine Art Fully Archival Prints: The best prints are the Giclee’s. They have the best archival quality and are found in museums and fine art gallery’s around the world. Pricing is based on size and usually the color of a Giclee is the closest to the original art.
I do commission paintings if you are wanting an original of your own. Please let me know if I can paint you a version or if there is a special subject you would like to have painted. See more about commissions on my about page.
