Dorothy and Toto in Oz, going shopping.
Prints are made from very high quality scans. PRINTS ORDERED LARGER THAN THE ORIGINAL PAINTING WILL ALSO SHOW ENLARGED FINE DETAIL, INCLUDING PAPER FIBERS, CANVAS WEAVE & BRUSH STROKES.

One of the great features of my web host is that you can buy products directly from my site.  It's that "Buy" button in the upper right corner of each image page.  You can also customize them to your liking.  Do you like a border on your prints and greeting cards, or do you prefer to have the images go right to the edge?  Do you want your print on photo paper, fine art paper or a canvas wrap?  It takes a few steps, but you can use these tools to get exactly the reproduction you want.  If you prefer to have someone else pick the options for you, contact me directly and I'll make up an order for you.  Either way you like, here are a few things to know about the products that aren't mentioned elsewhere:

  1. All digital images are made at a resolution high enough to give you a sharp, high quality reproduction up to 36" on the long side, regardless of the size of the original.  This means they are 50 to 100 megapixels -- compare that to your camera!  Reproductions with sides longer than 36" can be made available for some images; again, contact me if you require this.
  2. Fuji Pearl paper has an iridescent, almost metallic sheen to it.  This makes it ideal for paintings with gold in them, like the one shown here.  It also makes the prints appear different in different lighting, something originals do, but reproductions generally don't.
  3. Fine Art paper and Canvas Gallery Wrap reproductions are found under the "Showcase" heading.  Fine Art paper is a heavy, woven watercolor paper, perfect for making watercolor prints.  Gallery Wraps have the dimensions of original canvas, suitable for elaborate frames, but of course don't have the paint texture of original oils.
  4. Greeting cards are available on a variety of excellent, heavy paper stock.  Envelopes are included, and the cards are creased, but not yet folded.

I'm sure I'll have more to add to that list as time goes by.  Please comment with anything you'd like to see included!
