The digital images have been created on the computer with design software of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Corel Painter II. The images at the show are fine art giclee prints that will last a lifetime and more.

These paintings have been created from found objects, acrylic paint, and acrylic mediums. They have been painted on a foundation of wood and depict a sense of place.

The prints in this show are collagraph prints. I made the printing plates by glueing on various objects such as lace, cut-out cardboard shapes, washers, etc. Then, I coated the plate with gesso. The plate was then inked and a piece of fine quality print paper placed on top and sent through the printing press.

Most of the pieces (all the digital images) can be ordered as fine art giclee prints from my online store. The giclee prints here are of superb quality. I especially love the gallery-wrapped canvas. They come wrapped around 1.5" stretcher bars and are wired for instant hanging. They are beautiful.

I feel really good about this show. The best seller so far is "Light Force", a powerful tree image that was digitally created in Corel Painter II. It can be ordered as a fine art giclee print in many different sizes.
