Sycamore Flats


I will forever remember the time I started the painting "Sycamore Flats" as it was the week after my Mother passed away.  I came down to stay with my Dad for a while in Arroyo Seco and this happens to be the view from their backyard.  My mind was cluttered with many thoughts as I painted, and to be perfectly honest, I donít remember that many of the brush strokes.  Iím glad I painted it when I did.  Just recently my Dad passed away and in his last days when he wasnít able to go out and see the canyon, my brother, Stephen, thought to hang the painting so he could view it from bed.




Hand Crafted Wood Frame by Artist

The frames are made of non-endangered hardwood; milled, assembled, finished & matted by the Artist in a small shop in Placerville, California.

Planed boards are milled, mitered, splined with biscuits & glued. The frame is sanded, stained with red mahogany & two coats of sanding sealer are applied. Once again, the frame is sanded, followed by lacquer color coats; black on the edges; dark walnut on the face of the frame. It is finished with two coats of clear lacquer. The frame is then hand-rubbed with extra fine steel wool to achieve a satin finish.

The prints are mounted behind clear glass framed by double acid-free mats. Acid free foam core & a dust cover complete the assembly. The back has a pocket applied to house the Certificate of Authenticity which comes with each print. A wire for hanging the frame is attached.

Each frame is unique & because these frames are hand crafted from natural wood & are not a man made laminated veneer finish, there will be slight imperfections adding character to the whole piece.

If imperfections will disturb you, perhaps you would prefer to purchase a print & have your local frame shop take it from there. In either case it is my sincerest hope that you will be satisfied.





All prints are on Somerset Velvet, 100% rag paper.

Return Policy:  Money back, if piece is returned within seven days.
