Giclee printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival subtrates to print on large format printers. These giclee prints are affordable yet will last the test of time.  They are a wonderful investment as you begin your art collection.

THE ORIGINAL PAINTING

While my husband and l lived in the Chicago area, we loved to drive past a little church in Wayne, Illinois. It is a historic United Church of Christ church and sits on a very busy road. One sunny day, back in the 1990s, I took photos of the church and declared that one day I would paint it.

I would pull out those photos from time to time, but nothing ever got from my brain to a canvas. When we moved to Kentucky in 2003, I resumed walking on my family farm and loved the rocky cliffs that line a small creek behind our house. After taking photos of those rocks, somehow, the two images converged. I would paint the small church we both loved and place it in a wooded area with rocks...how symbolic.

I painted "Winter Wildwood" (named after the old song "Come to the Church in the Wildwood") in watercolor and had it matted and framed, thinking it was ready to be sold. My husband had a different desire. The original hangs in our living room and I had to promise that I would never sell it.

When I had requests for prints, I drove to Lexington and worked with Beau Graphics - known for working with artists and producing excellent prints. We printed a small number of 100% giclee prints, and then some in 11 x 14.

I hope you enjoy your purchase of Winter Wildwood as much as I enjoyed painting it. Although I will not print anymore of the limited edition 18 x 24 prints, I will keep the 11 x 14's on hand.
