Red Climbers, Watercolor, 14.5″ x 6.5″, 1995 © Bernadette E. Kazmarski. The original is sold but prints are available on paper or canvas.
NOTE: The original art was 14.5 x 6.5, but I also offer a print at 14 x 7 so that it fits standard 10 x 20 frames.
This painting has always been popular so I offer it in a variety of sizes. Because the art is cropped to fit many standard size frames and canvases, the gallery below includes the original and they cropped versions for various sizes:
Framed 9.5 x 4.5 Print (I had a frame and cut the mat to fit).
14.5 x 6.5, the native size
14 x 7, matted to fit 10 x 20 frame
14 x 7, unmatted
16 x 32 (canvas)
12 x 16 (canvas or print)
11 x 14 (canvas or print)
10 x 8 (canvas or print)
5 x 7 (greeting card)
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
This photo reminded me of my mother’s climbing red roses which grew up a trellis on the side of the house. These roses have always fascinated me because they just keep going–up the fence, over the fence, down the other side. As a watercolor it was pure pleasure, with enough color, light and shadow and shape for it to be interesting. The reflected light near the bottom, especially, was a joy to study and discover.
Shipping within the US is included in all the prices listed. All shipping is via Priority Mail. Prints are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Canvases are shipped in a box to fit with padding.
The giclees are printed on acid-free hot press art paper for a smooth matte finish using archival inks. Giclee is the highest quality print available because the technique uses a dozen or more ink ports to capture all the nuances of the original painting, including details of the texture, far more sensitive than any other printing medium. Sometimes my giclees look so much like my originals that even I have a difficult time telling them apart when they are in frames. The giclees have 2″ of white around the outside edges.
I don’t keep giclee prints in stock for most of my works. Usually I have giclees printed as they are ordered unless I have an exhibit where I’ll be selling a particular print so there is a wait of up to two weeks before receipt of your print to allow for time to print and ship.
Digital prints are made on acid-free matte-finish natural white 100# cover using archival digital inks. While digital prints are not the quality of a giclee in capturing every nuance and detail of color, texture and shading, I am still very pleased with the outcome and usually only I as the artist, could tell where detail and color were not as sharp as the original.
The 5″ x 7″ and 8″ x 10″ digital prints are centered on 8.5″ x 11″ digital cover while the 11″ x 14″ has 1″ around the edges because the digital paper is 12″ wide. All are countersigned by me.
I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are a 3/4″ in depth, Canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2″ in depth. I set them up so the image runs from edge to edge, then the sides are black or white or sometimes I slip in a color that coordinates with the painting.
