It has been a very busy couple of weeks with teaching, life in general and putting the finishing touches on my newest painting. Even once the painting is finished, I still have a lengthy process to go through before the prints are ready to travel off to customers and stores. I have to photograph, and then adjust the digital image until the colors of the print look accurate. I am very grateful for a patient printer who understands how important the look of the artwork is to my final presentation. Once the prints are complete, I have to trim each print by hand and then apply multiple coats of UV protection so they can then be mounted, before being assembled and shipped off to loving homes.
