Coming soon (I hope) - prints!

I've recently become intrigued by the idea of producing a few giclee (or do you say "geclee") prints of some older art. A giclee print is essentially a high-end inkjet print made using archival inks on archival paper.  

This interest was sparked by the desire to share a couple of specific works on paper for which I'm not willing to part with the original. A big part of the success is starting with a quality digital image, which adds considerably to the initial setup cost; this would most likely involve having whichever service I use do the scan using a commercial scanner. 

That being said, I'm thinking of doing a test print or two using a smaller image I can scan myself.

Informed friends (thank you, Marshall Harris and John Moore) have shared their experiences and suggestions and I'm hoping to continue to tax their generosity and good will!

After a prolonged absence...

It's embarrassing to see that the last post on this blog was almost 2 year ago. Sheesh. That is going away NOW.

What's new? Oldest son is back in Texas, after a seven year stay in Toronto. He's now in Austin, working for Whole Foods. Youngest son has one more year at Texas State University. All my once far-flung offspring have returned, only a 3 hour car trip away.

The art? Sigh...
