Bodega Bay, California
Bodega Head Seastacks in Fog, Sonoma Coast, California
There is something about foggy weather that makes me feel reinvigorated. I believe it stems back to my childhood as it reminds me of our summer family trips along the Central and Northern California coast. It was foggy during these trips more often than not. Fog takes me back to a simpler and more innocent time in life.

Framed Metal Print - Ready To Hang
Printed directly on aluminum Dibond with a modern, 7-color technique using top-grade UV fine art inks. Colors are highly saturated and have good tonal gradation which ensures accurate reproduction. Direct prints on aluminum Dibond are matte and glare-free, while the highlights have a faint, silky gloss. The metal print is then framed with a wood floater frame with a .28" gap between the frame and photo which helps draw the viewer into the artwork. This is a modern, and much more cost-effective yet durable way to frame a print than traditional paper & hinge-mounted matte framing.
Floater frames are available in four colors: brown alder (pictured), black oak, natural oak and white maple. Note the additional height and width that the 1.22" frame and .28" gap adds to the final dimensions. For example, a framed 60" x 40" inch masterpiece print would come out to approximately 63" x 43" inches. Beginning in 2019, I will be custom signing all individual prints with a digital signature for provenance unless requested otherwise.
Premium Framed Metal Print - Ready to Hang
Fuji Crystal Archive Maxima silver halide prints are protected with a UV matte laminate then mounted on aluminum DiBond which provide a sturdy backing for the print while keeping the weight low. Maxima prints have 10% more print density for richer blacks and 21% more color space volume for a broader range of saturated colors. The matte surface eliminates distracting glare and reflections allowing the viewer to focus on the artwork. This type of print is much higher quality than dye sublimation metal prints which have less sharpness and color accuracy. The photo print on aluminum backing is then framed with a 2.8" premium Italian frame that is hand-crafted by artisans from the birthplace of the Renaissance. The resulting artwork is truly a sight to behold as this framing technique is cutting-edge and one of the highest-quality ways to display art today.
Premium Italian frames are available in three colors: anthracite, tobacco (pictured) and walnut. Note the additional height and width that the 2.8" frame adds to the final dimensions. For example, a framed 40" x 60" inch masterpiece print would come out to approximately 45.4" x 65.4" inches. Beginning in 2019, I will be custom signing all individual prints with a digital signature for provenance unless requested otherwise.
Lumachrome Acrylic Face Mount - Ready To Hang
The ultimate in luxury fine art printmaking today. Lumachrome HD Acrylic face mounts are the most visually-stunning type of prints that you can own. The finest details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the photo with the Lumachrome process thanks to the transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles (one of the rarest metals found on Earth) and is captured in a layer suspended between the white poly surface and non-glare TruView acrylic. The resulting print almost appears as if it is backlit. Beginning in 2019, I will be custom signing all individual prints with a digital signature for provenance unless requested otherwise.
This ready-to-hang print includes a 1/8" acrylic face mount with a 6mm or 12mm Comatex backing and an HD Italian ROMA back mounted floating frame.
