Laguna Beach Fine Art Landscape Photography

Image Title: "Monet Skies" - click image above for a larger view
Image Size: 24" x 36"
Total Size: 35" x 47"
Edition: 1 of 100
Price: $750

This 3-foot wide print of a "Monet-like" sky reflected in wet sand at Crystal Cove State Park, CA is framed with a light pecan, rustic style frame that I personally hand-made using top-quality moulding. The image is further accented with a seamless off-white linen liner with a 25-degree bevel that helps to showcase the rich colors in the image. The metallic paper used in all of my fine art prints coupled with the UV-protective gloss coating really accents the wet sand in the shot.

Image Title: "Neptune Dreams" - click image above for a larger view
Image Size: 16" x 24"
Total Size: 24" x 32"
Edition: 1 of 100
Price: $450

Taken in Crystal Cove State Park on New Year's Day 2010, this image of seagrass-covered rocks under a fiery sunset showcases nearly the entire rainbow of nature's colors. I hand-made this frame using a pecan-colored frame with rich, warm tones to help bring out the reds and yellows of the sunset. The cream-toned liner with its 30-degree bevel draws the attention in to the artwork and works to enhance the colors of the image, making them "pop" off the metallic-based paper.

As with all limited edition fine art prints, this piece is printed with LightJet technology on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper, making them the finest quality prints available. Click here for more info about my fine art prints.

Both pieces are available for sale and both will be on display in Artist Eye Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA starting June 29th. Information about Artist Eye Gallery can be found here.

Featured Fine Art Piece: Tide Pool & Clearing Storm

Image Title: Tide Pool and Clearing Storm
Image Size: 10"x15"
Total Size: 17"x22"
Edition: 5 of 100
Price: $350 SOLD
Framing: This unique piece is framed with a dark brown burl frame hand-made by Nick Carver himself using top-quality moulding. The image is further accented with a seamless black linen liner with a 30-degree bevel that helps to showcase the rich colors in the image.

This framed piece was made-to-order according the requests of the client. I worked with her via email to figure out a piece that would fit her budget, style and home decor. The image itself was taken in Laguna Beach during a stormy sunset and features a warm color palette of rich golds and browns. The frame moulding was selected based on its color and texture to help accent the textures of the rock formation in the foreground of the image. The deep walnut hue of the frame was chosen so as to compliment the warm tones of the image without being distracting or too "matchy."

Image Title: Bunch Falls (view)
Image Size: 19"x48"
Total Size: 26"x55"
Edition: 1 of 100
Framing: This unique piece is framed with a charcoal burl frame hand-made by Nick Carver himself using top-quality moulding. The image is further accented with a seamless black linen liner with a 30-degree bevel that helps to showcase the rich colors in the image without being distracting.

I made this piece partly as a sample for showing to galleries, partly as a test for doing large-format vertical panoramas and partly just as a personal labor of love. I love this picture and I love vertical panoramas, so I wanted to try creating a big framed version of it. It's the largest piece I've ever made at nearly 5 feet tall! I used a charcoal frame with a black linen liner so as to let the vivid greens of the plants shine through. With minimal color in the framing, the colors of the print itself stand out even more. The high-gloss finish on this print goes great with the subject matter - the water and rocks truly look wet!

As with all limited edition fine art prints, this piece is printed with LightJet technology on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper, making them the finest quality prints available. Click here for more info on fine art prints.
