The original of this painting was a small 6" x 8" pastel study for a painting I'd intended to do later which is also available here, entitled "Morning on the Creek".

I was in a canoe at the time, so I snapped several photos for reference. As familiar as I am with nature, and with the scenes I see all the time when I'm out on the trails and creek, it always surprises me how details are lost, or mixed with those of other scenes. I painted this sketch from one of the photos that evening to make sure I held onto all the elements I loved best, such as the clusters of leaves that caught the sunlight, the beams of sunlight pouring between the trees and the extreme contrast of the shadow at the bottom


Shipping within the US is included in all the prices listed. All shipping is via Priority Mail. Prints are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Canvases are shipped in a box to fit with padding. Since this original is small it is also shipped in a box with extra padding.


Because this painting is 8" x 12", ordering an 8" x 10" will crop a portion from the top of the image so I've offered full-size prints in various types for the same price.


The giclees are printed on acid-free hot press art paper for a smooth matte finish using archival inks. Giclee is the highest quality print available because the technique uses a dozen or more ink ports to capture all the nuances of the original painting, including details of the texture, far more sensitive than any other printing medium. Sometimes my giclees look so much like my originals that even I have a difficult time telling them apart when they are in frames.

I don't keep giclee prints in stock for most of my works. Usually I have giclees printed as they are ordered unless I have an exhibit where I'll be selling a particular print so there is a wait of up to two weeks before receipt of your print to allow for time to print and ship.


Digital prints are made on acid-free matte-finish natural white 100# cover using archival digital inks. While digital prints are not the quality of a giclee in capturing every nuance and detail of color, texture and shading, I am still very pleased with the outcome and usually only I as the artist, could tell where detail and color were not as sharp as the original.

The giclees have 2" of white around the outside edges. The 5" x 7" and 8" x 10" digital prints are centered on 8.5" x 11" digital cover while the 11" x 14" has 1" around the edges because the digital paper is 12" wide. All are countersigned by me.


I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are a 3/4" in depth, canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2" in depth. I set them up so the image runs from edge to edge, then the sides are black or white or sometimes I slip in a color that coordinates with the painting. This canvas is blue on the sides.
