Last January I had an exhibit of my artwork at the local community college library. With the exhibit, I included about a dozen prints of my work. I printed these images on acid-free, 140 lb. watercolor paper, using my ink jet printer. I printed each image at 7.5" x 9.5" and then mounted it on an 8" x 10" gallery-wrapped canvas, with 3/4" thick edges. Each canvas was painted to coordinate with its print.
The canvas is titled, signed, and dated on the back. This photo shows a sample of a side view of one of the finished canvases.
After the exhibit, I'd stowed these canvases in a box and put them on a shelf in a closet. Since they weren't doing anyone any good in the closet, I decided to "drop" them around town, like I've done with dolls for The Toy Society. This past week I did two drops at our local hospital. A print of my Great Horned Owl (his name is Max) was the first one I left.
Here's where the real Max now hangs in our house.
