Chasing the Moon
Archival prints and cards of a rising moon in a textured moonlit night sky. Driving home one evening, I chased this moon, which hid behind every tree, mountain, and building for miles. At the point that I had given up getting a photograph of this elusive skyscape, I crested my hill and parked, rewarded with a unique reference photo for painting. This artwork makes a wonderful gift to a nature lover, or one who appreciates the night or skyscapes in general.
Limited edition prints are on bamboo paper and come numbered, titled and signed by artist, either with or without a mat and frame. There are three print sizes to choose from, 8" x 10," 11" x 14" and 16" x 20." 8'' x 10" and 11" x 14" unframed prints come with an archival backer and ship flat. 16" x 20" unframed print ships rolled without the backer.
Framed prints are matted with an archival off-white mat and backer, under glass, and live-edge frame is completely ready to hang. Mat and frame adds approximately 8” to each side; For example, an 8" x 10" print that is framed is approximately 16” x 18." Frame dimensions are approximate due to the variability of widths in the live-edge wood; No two frames are alike. Artist-crafted frame is made from rescued slab wood, wood that is normally burned as sugaring wood or bonfires. Frame is finished in three coats of Vermont poly-whey varnish, a USDA certified biobased product. Note: photo of framed print shows a different example print but is to show the handcrafted mat and frame style.
Inside of card is left blank, ready for your personalization. Card measures approximately 5 1/4" x 4" and is printed on white cardstock. A white envelope is included with each card.
