Limited-edition giclee prints 16x20 matted
This painting was quite a challenge and took over two months to finish. The original is matted and framed in a burnished gold 18x24 frame and will look stunning on your wall, or on a decorative easel. The limited-edition giclee prints are matted for a 16x20 frame.
I painted the background mountain range a couple of years ago and it sat on a shelf because it was so plain. A couple of weeks ago, I got it out and determined what to do with it - add the tree in the foreground for perspective and depth. Then, I added the pine trees on the near mountains. It changed the whole look of the painting. Original 14x17 floated on mat and framed; limited-edition giclee prints 11x14
We were at the Asheville Farmer's Market and these peppers jumped out at me - they were so colorful. We bought a pound, came home, tried several arrangements, and they looked best in this silver dish. Then I painted them. This painting has been entered in a national art contest. The original is SOLD; limited-edition giclee prints are available: size 16x20.
