It was the Summer of '06 & my very first time to Yosemite even though I have lived the majority of my life within three hours of the most amazing place I have ever seen. Oh, I had seen photos & paintings, but until you stand on the valley floor & see the cliffs vaulting to the heavens, you can't possibly feel the majesty of this special place. This year Billie & I are returning & I'm sure once again my mind will be overtaken by more incredible earth images.
The frames are made of non-endangered hardwood; milled, assembled, finished & matted by the Artist in a small shop in Placerville, California.
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.
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 mperfections 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.
