Giclée come from the French verb meaning “to spray” and describes the fine art printing process of spraying millions of continuous tone colors onto specialty papers and canvas media. Giclée produces a high degree of image detail from an original digital file or scanned film using continuous tone technology and rendering deeply saturated colors and broad tonal values. Today’s archival inks and state-of-the-art digital printers create lasting works of art.
All giclées are matted and shrinkwrapped or framed upon printing. Mattes are antique white with a margin of about three to five inches on the sides and larger at the bottom, proportional to the scale of the print. Frames are museum quality maple.
Only 100 of each print in scales of 6” and 22” are ever produced. You may request a print of any work of art shown on this site, including large-scale, though production times may vary. Prices range from $125 to $1000. Rick Rhodes Photography does the printing and color correction. Mary Edna has worked with them for over twenty years and remains pleased with the way the silks and monotypes transition to archival watercolor paper.
