"Before The Rain" is a quality giclee print made from an original watercolor painting by Cathy Hillegas. It shows the white branches of a sycamore tree against a stormy sky. The original painting won an award in the Ky Watercolor Society Aqueous show several years ago.

The image size is 7.6" x 10.2" and the paper size is 8.5" x 11". This would fit a pre-cut mat made for an 8" x10" (the opening is usually 7.5" x 9.5"). A mat is not included but can be added for an additional $5.

My prints are made with archival inks on acid free velvet fine art paper. It is hand signed and numbered and comes from an edition of 800. The photo shows an example of how yours will be signed (your number will be different). I usually place the numbers inside the image but can put them on the bottom white border or on the back if you would prefer - just let me know.

It comes well protected in a clear plastic sleeve, backed by cardboard. It is also available as a larger print (11" x 14") here:

or even larger (16" x 22") here:

The original painting has been sold. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Frequently asked questions about CathyHillegas

Custom orders will take more processing time. Asking for a print in an odd size may only take an extra day or so. A commissioned painting from your photo may take as long as 3 or 4 months. Custom orders may only be returned if they can be sold to someone else. Sales of commissioned paintings are final but you will see photos of the finished product ahead of time and will be sold to you with your approval.
Most prints can be made in custom sizes to fit your space. Please allow extra time for this and measure carefully.
We do not offer gift wrapping but can include a card with your message if you are sending a gift.

All our orders are well protected and packed to arrive safely. Prints are shipped flat in a clear plastic sleeve, backed by cardboard. They are sandwiched between heavy cardboard that is larger than the print. Shipping costs include the cost of packing materials, not just postage.
