Legend says this beautiful cove in Nova Scotia was named after a survivor of a shipwreck at Halibut Rock. It's easy to see why so many artists flock to this beautiful location. Phil has depicted a storm rolling in, perhaps an homage to Hurricanes Juan and Bill, which rolled through in 2003 and 2009 respectively, damaging roads, homes, and the breakwater. Put this piece up to remind you that despite life's storms, we all can find respite in recognizing the beauty around us.
All of our prints are made using a high-quality Giclee printer. We do a limited run on each painting, and each piece is numbered and signed.
What is Giclee? The term"giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. Among the manufacturers of these printers are vanguards such as Epson, MacDermid Colorspan, & Hewlett-Packard. These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclee prints are sometimes referred to as Iris prints, which are 4-Color ink-jet prints from a printer pioneered in the late 1970s by Iris Graphics.
Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclee prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,800 for Wolfgang Tillmans.
