Matte Canvas Now Available!

Thick stretched and mounted matte canvas prints are now available!

Matte canvas is thick stretched and mounted professional grade bright white, poly-cotton canvas weave, which provides more resistance to humidity and shrinkage over time. Acid free coating offers improved ink saturation and better contrast over most regular canvases. Canvas prints will be mounted over 1.5 inch thick (depth) stretcher bars. These prints are meant to be hung unframed or inserted into a canvas floater frame. The sides of the mounted canvas are solid white.

Select your favorites from my Etsy or Square Market stores – or contact me directly.

Fullscreen Gallery Now Available!

My most recent work is now available to view as a fullscreen gallery.  You can access this page using the Fullscreen link on the sidebar to the left or by clicking here.

What’s the difference between this gallery and the other I posted about yesterday?  Well, this gallery will display only my most recent work.  Further, it uses the entire viewable area of your browser.  Best of all, it’s responsive in design, so regardless of your device, the results should be similar.

It’s easy to use, too.  Simply click/tap the LAST/NEXT buttons in the upper left/right to move back and forth.  The current image number is enlarged compared to the others.  If you look at the bottom of the page, you’ll see a rectangular icon that changes orientation with each photograph.  This let’s you know that the current image is either landscape or portrait.  If you’re using a phone or tablet to view the gallery, simply rotate your device and the page should refresh to show as much of the image as possible.  If you’re using a desktop browser, just drag the edges to follow the icon’s shape and the image will resize accordingly.

If you’d like the code for this simple gallery to display your own images, please contact me and I’ll provide you a link to the files!

New Gallery Available!
