Originals versus Prints of Paintings
Originals are drawings and paint on Crescent Illustration Board or paint on canvas. If an original painting is on illustration board, it is shipped with a mat board and protected with cellophane or plastic. If an original painting is on canvas, the sides are painted a dark solid color so they can be hung without a frame. Paintings on canvas are finished with a UV varnish.
Prints on Fine Artists Paper or Canvas are Gicleé prints
These are very high quality prints known for their true colors and longevity. A Gicleé print closely resemble the original painting. The prints are in proportions of the original painting with the title and my signature below the image. The prints on fine artist paper are loosely rolled and packaged in a tube for safe shipping. The canvas prints have the edges painted a solid color and can be hung without a frame.
