On Oia

The Original Oil Painting is sold ~ Prints are available here


“On Oia” (eeah)

I have my favorites and this may be one.  “On Oia” speaks to me in a quiet way with peaceful and serene thoughts.  Oia is a small area at the end of Santorini island known the world over for its sunsets.  I am sure it has something to do with the position it holds in the Aegean Sea and on the earth, and most importantly because God created this wonderful Island.  Visiting Santorini requires some viewing of the cliff dwellings and to accomplish this you need to have good walking shoes, and know that it is a little like snow skiing.  When you are going down the hill it takes little effort, but coming back up can be daunting.  To be truthful I only skied once.  I went up the hill once (just one time) on a lift in the morning and came down just one time just before dark.  I guess lessons would have helped, but I learned more by just sitting down on my skis and traveling at a slower speed.  I am a self-taught fine art oil painter but I think all of us have gifts, just different ones.  “Love” and “like” are two different aspects of our personalities and abilities.  Skiing for me is well not so much either one.   I love and like painting because paintings and prints can be viewed for as long as you want, wherever you want and when I am in heaven someone here can still enjoy.

This information below pertains to the “Canvas” prints I have listed. I sell Archival Watercolor Paper Prints in the same sizes and the series numbers have not been issued yet. I will be adding paper as soon as I can get more of my prints listed, however, they are priced less than Canvas. You can always ask me on the “contact form” what the paper prices are. This is a good time to mention, “follow me”, so you can see what I list and when.

I print on Epson Canvas with my Archival Epson Printer. I have been producing paper prints for over 20 years and Canvas for about 8 years. I render (bring to life) images of my work from raw media, disc, 4×5 negatives, etc. My prints are on Archival Canvas made to last 100 years or more, sealed with an acid free clear spray. The prints are lightly mounted flat on acid free mat board. Canvas prints are never put under glass. You can find standard size frames many places, just take the glass out permanently and put your print in. I find that your décor is easier to work with in standard size frames if you are using smaller art and less expensive if the Artist does all the rendering and printing. These Limited Edition Prints are new editions in the size shown on the purchase form. When all 100 numbered prints of any one series (print name) are sold I retire the series in that size and name and no more of those prints can be made. I can print in different sizes and on different media in limited editions until all of those are sold. Open editions or non-numbered series are like open stock “china”, as long as the maker keeps making the china they are available.

If you are purchasing a Limited-edition print, the Artist will sign and number a Certificate of Authenticity for every Limited Edition print purchased. If you purchase more than one “numbered” print, at the same time, the numbers will be in succession on each Certificate for the same series. Your print will be printed on flat (not stretched) Canvas. It will be lightly mounted on acid-free mat board for easy framing in a standard size frame. Take the glass permanently out of the frame you purchase. The print and its backing board will fit in the frame and rest against the same ledge (called the rabbet) that the glass rested against. Glass out ~ Print in. I do have my work shown on other sites. If you want to confirm what numbers you are wanting to purchase, please use the contact form on the page of the print you are looking at, with the number or numbers you wish to purchase and I will hold your place by time and date and get back to you as soon as I see your message.
