Chia– In Heaven's Doorway

Giclée of Original Watercolor
SIZE: 21" x 28" • Unframed
RETAIL: $250
EDITION: 50 Signed and Numbered

My furry friend Chia sat in this patch of sun every afternoon. When she passed away at age twenty years, I couldn’t help but reflect on the life we shared. I used a wet-in-wet technique to create a soft, muted effect. After the painting dried, I lifted out color to create whiskers and highlights in her fur. I got a little carried away making whiskers! Earth tones were perfect to depict her calico fur.

One full sized giclée is available. To acquire this image please contact me in the comments below or via my web site.

This giclée is full size like the original painting. Giclées are considered museum quality fine art prints. Unlike large, lithographic print runs, giclées are printed just a few at a time with dye-based, archival quality inks on acid-free, archival watercolor papers. Each print is approved, hand-signed and numbered by the artist. Giclée prints should be displayed in a dry location out of direct sunlight. Proper care will add to their longevity and to enjoyment of them for years to come.
