"Celtic Crab et al"
Giclée and Goldleaf Embellished
13 ½" x 10 ¾" - $165 Unframed

Celtic, Woven and Golden Crabs: These crabs were painted after a trip to Ireland, a trip to Ketchikan, and a trip to Florence. The Celtic monk, the Tlingit basket weaver and the renaissance gilder might be surprised to find that creatures in the local Puget Sound water provide suitable frames for their works.

Giclée (ghee-clay) is French for "to spray". In short it is a process whereby the original artwork is rendered digitally. Artists at the printery, or atelier, work with the image on a high resolution computer screen to get it completely accurate. Then the image is printed onto a substrate of either canvas or paper. My works are on museum-quality paper using archival inks. I limit my editions to 100 and often add gold leaf or bits of hand coloring.
