Oregon Grape. Oregon grape is only slightly sweet, yet Native Americans traditionally dried them as sweeteners for winter use. Some jelly makers prefer them for their pectin content and many birds love to snack on them. Since the birds have a penchant for these sweet berries, and because they frequently perch over my laundry line, I have learned a bit about how permanent the purpleness of these berries are.

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.

Price of shipping to be determined.
