Infinite Waterfalls in the Fjords of Alaska

Infinite Waterfalls in the Fjords of Alaska

$1,700.00

We left the small port of Juneau late in the day aboard our small ship, and navigated our way down the waterways, leaving the charming town in our wake.

As we entered the fjords of Endicott Arm, we were greeted by massive granite mountains rising out of the sea on both sides of the narrow strait.  The monoliths were smooth and slick as if molded out of clay and towering waterfalls cascaded down their faces, creating silver ribbons of water reflecting the white sky above.  I was mesmerized by their massive size and the incredible number of waterfalls, I have never seen so many at one time.  Everywhere I looked, there were waterfalls shimmering in the light. 

That afternoon, we anchored just off of Dawes Glacier.  We loaded into inflatable skiffs and set off towards the glacier to get a closer look.  We made our way through the maze of floating “bergy bits,” chunks of ice bobbing in the water.   As we got closer to the glacier we cut our engine and sat floating amongst the white chunks of ice, each one sculpted differently than the next.  Except for the sound of distant waterfalls and the occasional seabird, there was silence all around. We waited patiently, hoping to catch a momentary glimpse of the great glacier calving.  Suddenly without warning, somebody yelled, “there it goes!”  A giant slab of blue ice broke off and tumbled into the sea, shattering itself into fragments on the way down.  Moments later, the thunderous sound filled our ears, as the small waves rocked our boat from side to side.  I will never forget this awesome spectacle of nature, surrounded by the infinite waterfalls of the fjords of Alaska.

Canvas Giclee:

Our Signed and Numbered Canvas Giclees are printed on canvas and are the same size as the original painting. By printing on canvas, the colors achieved are bright and vivid, mirroring the intensity of Grant's originals. Our canvas giclees are stretched on heavy duty stretcher bars and are museum wrapped (the painting continues around the sides), adding a three dimensional studio feel and creating the option to hang them unframed for a more contemporary look. Each one is signed on the front and signed and numbered on the back. Our Signed and Numbered Canvas Giclee are in an edition of 100 (there are only 100 ever made).

Artist Enhanced Giclee:

Take a Canvas Giclee, hand highlight it, make it one of a kind, and you’ll have an Artist Enhanced Giclee. Our Artist Enhanced Giclees are custom ordered and painted specially for you. Grant hand embellishes each one of these original creations with paint, adding brushstrokes, texture and pops of color. The paint really brings the giclee to life, adding bright, vivid color – there is nothing like it. Our Artist Enhanced Giclées are the next best thing to our originals (at less than half the cost). Each one is signed on the front and numbered on the back. Keeping within Grant’s commitment to his art, he has set the edition size very low. Our Artist Enhanced Giclees are in an edition of 50 (there are only 50 ever made).

Perfect Giclee on Metal:

Our Perfect Giclees are printed on Metal with bright vibrant colors and a high gloss varnish. By printing on metal, the colors achieved are bright and vivid, mirroring the intensity of Grant's originals. Our Perfet Giclees are produced using the latest in die-sublimation technology and the finest materials available on the market. This combination allows us to create an unparalleled color gamut with the highest archival standards available. Each Perfect Giclee includes hanging hardware on the back, so they are ready to hang as soon as you get them home. They are each signed on the front. They are printed in an open edition.

MiniGiclee:

Our Metal MiniGiclees are the same as our Perfect Giclee on Metals, just smaller - kind of a bite-size giclee, for somewhere that you would like a small pop of color. They are often hung next to a bedside or next to a your computer for a mini-escape. They are also wonderful in a grouping of 3 for a greater impact. They include hanging hardware on the back, so they are ready to hang as soon as you get them home. They are printed in an open edition.

 

WHAT IS A GICLEE?

A Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) is a high-end upscale fine art reproduction. Each giclee is custom created, one-at-a-time as it is acquired by collectors.

In the giclee process, the image is generated from a high-resolution digital scan and printed with UV inks onto archival quality canvas. An ultra-fine stream of non-toxic water based ink, more than 4 million droplets per second, is jet-sprayed onto the canvas. This produces a combination of over 3 million possible colors resulting in prints that are lush and vibrant with the look and tonality of a fine art oil painting. Limited-edition giclees are signed on the front of the piece and numbered on the back.

A fantastic advantage of giclee printing is that the digital images can be reproduced to almost any size, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.

Giclee prints have gained worldwide acceptance in the art community and can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris displaying works which cannot be allowed out of the museum cellars, and would otherwise never be shown to the public.
