About the Venus Transits:

In 1874, and again in 1882, Venus passed across the face of the Sun. These events, known as Transits of Venus, occur in pairs more than a century apart – the previous transits had occured in 1761 and 1769, and the most recent pair happened in 2004 and 2012. Observing the transits of Venus has been used to calculate the distance of the Earth from the Sun.

•• PRINT QUALITY ••
Unlike most print sellers on Etsy, I do not use the large print fulfillment houses but print and trim every piece of art in my studio to ensure the highest quality. Through much experimentation I've developed a process and set of materials that create the highest quality Giclée prints you'll find anywhere. They are printed with archival inks on 100% cotton heavy-weight Fine Art Paper that has a slight texture similar to watercolor paper, which gives the prints a beautiful velvet-like Matte finish. These are fine art Giclée prints - not posters!

Most of my prints are available in the following standard sizes:
- 8" x 10"
- 11" x 14"
- 16" x 20"

- 24 x30"

My prints are High Quality Fine Art Giclée Prints made on a top-of-the-line Large Format 12-ink Archival Pigment printer. I print on heavyweight, archival, 100% cotton fine art paper that has a slight texture to it similar to watercolor paper. The inks I use are rated for over 100 years before fading.
Yes, I work with a professional framer to offer custom framing for my prints as an add-on option. Some of the listings include a custom frame option. If they don't you can use this listing to add your frame: https://www.etsy.com/listing/235625460/framed-art-add-a-custom-frame-to-your?ref=shop_home_active_1

*Please note that frames are custom made for your art and therefore cannot be returned. Please ask any questions you may have before ordering.
Custom framing means a professional framer builds a frame from wooden moulding to precisely fit your print. Your print will be mounted in the frame so that it doesn't shift and can not be removed. A custom framer will use much higher quality materials than most off-the-shelf framing such as UV plexiglass, archival mounting materials, higher quality woods, and professional hanging mounts. The finished piece wil look far superior than a store-bought frame. However, it is more expensive and takes more time.
Your local frame shop will often sell pre-made frames, as well as Target, IKEA, CB2, Michael's, Room and Board, Blick Art supply, and Crate and Barrel to name only a few.
Yes, in most cases. Please contact me to discuss.
Yes, I do all my own printing, trimming, and packing out of my studio in Los Angeles. This allows me to completely control the quality of my prints and keep them at my very high standards. Many other sellers use large national production houses for their fulfillment.
Please contact me with any issues you may have regarding your order before leaving a review. I want you to love your purchase and am happy to work on resolving issues that may arise (very rare by the way!)
