I re-released a new product a couple of months ago and it has been doing very well at the open air Saturday market where I set up shop twice a month. These are fine art prints which I have mounted to wood panels. My first edition of prints like these was about 4 years ago when I mounted the prints to 6x6x2" deep cradles that appeared like blocks and sat on a shelf. This time around, I am using 3/4" panels and offering numerous sizes and shapes to accommodate the growing image collection in my studio. They are more wall friendly, and will also sit nicely on an easel.
When people visit me and flip through my print rack, I often hear, "Oh, so and so would love this, but I don't want to buy them a gift that they will have to pay to frame." AHA! I listened. Well, NOW, I have these ready to hang with no more fuss! Easy peasy and everyone's happy. You get a great looking inexpensive proud to give print and they get instant hanging appeal and hopefully, some joy.
My process is a lot of steps, but worth it. With a lot of love, I have sanded, painted or stained, mounted and, finally varnished by hand each and every little panel with my hands. On the back, a small paper label is mounted with information about the print and my studio, and then I add a wee hanging wire inside the cradle edge so it will sit flat on the wall or unobstructed on an easel.
There you have it; gorgeous ready-to-hang long lasting ink jet giclées, sealed and protected for display anywhere, even in humid environments (like a bathroom!)
Sizes offered are: 4x4", 6x6", 5x7", 8x10", 11x14", 12x16", 10x20" and 16x20".
These fun print panels are coming to my shops on Etsy and Artfire by September, but are currently only available at the Marietta Square Artists Market (http://www.artistsmarketmarietta.com/) and Dootique, the shop next to the DooGallery in Reynoldstown, Atlanta, off Memorial Dr. and Holtzclaw.

Have a great day,
Where are you?
