Featured Fine Art Piece: Tide Pool & Clearing Storm

Laguna Beach Fine Art Landscape Photography

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."

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.

The quality of these framed limited editions prints is as superior as ever. I'm still using the highest-quality metallic-based prints available along with custom framing (done by me personally) in a process that utilizes seamless linen liners and no glass, resulting in a truly unique look that showcases the photograph in the best way possible. And, as always, every print is a limited edition of only 100.
