Q. Is this an original watercolor painting?
A. This is an archival inkjet PRINT of the original watercolor painting. Printed on Hahnemuhle German Etching, 20mil, 310 gsm bright white paper. This heavyweight paper has a textured surface and is printed with Canon Lucia inkjet inks. The print looks identical and maybe even better than my original painting!
Q. Is the artwork signed?
A. Prints have an embedded signature in the image. My signature is printed at the same time as the artwork. The prints are not dated.
Q. Is the print framed?
A. No, the prints are unframed but will fit into standard sized U.S. frames. To allow for a mat around the prints, larger frame sizes are needed. Just use the next standard size larger.
Q. The print I received is curled. How do I flatten it?
A. Remove the print from the tube with clean hands and unroll it. Only handle the print by the edges and never touch the printed image area. Lay out the print, image side up, on a flat surface. With a sheet of smooth, clean paper covering the print's image, place a few, smooth, flat, heavy objects (such as books) on the ends and middle of the print. Let it sit for a few hours. Current humidity and temperature will affect the time needed. That’s it! Your print should be flattened and ready for framing. Never iron or use steam or moisture on the art print. Also, never scrape the print over a sharp edge. Yikes!
Q. Do your prints come in different sizes?
A. Prints come in the standard sizes of 8”x10”, 11”x14”, 16”x20”, 8”x8”, 12”x12”, or 16”x16”. Email me if a different size is needed and I'll try to make it work.
Q. Will your prints fade?
A. I provide prints with archival inkjet inks on archival bright white paper. Archival means it should last at least a hundred years under ideal environmental conditions. If you frame the print and don't display it in direct sunlight, it should look bright and colorful for a very long time!
