Featured Fine Art Piece: Bunch Falls

Bunch Falls (click to expand)

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.
