Limited Edition Giclee of Original Transparent Watercolor.
Price of 12″ x 9″ print (unframed): $50.00 + Shipping & Handling.
This barn, built in the early 1700s, sits snugly in a blanket of snow high above Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Seven brothers donated the house, barn, and a large tract of land to their church. Every spring smoke rising above the woods alerts the town below that the sugar maple trees are running sap, the brothers are in the still making syrup, and that all are welcome to come up and feast on sausages and pancakes covered with hot, fresh maple syrup. This image was chosen by the Fine Arts Council of BMPC in 2008 as their Christmas card offered through the non-profit Alternative Gift Program. It was March when I painted this transparent watercolor en plein air before a pancake breakfast. You can see where snowflakes hit the paper. Images are 12″ x 9″ with a 1″ white border on 140 lb acid-free watercolor paper and will fit standard size 14″x11″ frame or can be matted to fit standard 20″x16″ frame. Each Giclee is reproduced at 1800 “squirts” per square inch using pigmented inks to provide a wide color gamut, vibrant image quality and long-lasting print life of museum quality. Giclee is French for “to spray” or “to sputter.” Because there is no visible dot screen pattern, the resulting image has all the subtle tonalities of the original and colors do not bleed into each other. It is recommended that this print be handled like any fine original to last a lifetime. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, excessive dust, smoke or humidity for maximum longevity. Each print is numbered and signed by the Artist. Limited to 250 prints.
