Pencils and Prints

I met an artist who had enhanced his giclee art prints with colored pencils.  It is a technique that never occurred to me and I was amazed at how he was able to transform his images.  What were once flat, dull colors were now rich and vibrant.  I decided that I would try the same thing with my own work.  I had created a number of giclee prints a few years ago that dreadfully disappointed in terms of their quality.  The colors were and dull the image sharpness was lacking.  They were virtually useless to as pieces that I could sell so I had discarded them.   After ignoring them for a couple years I had an inspiration and reinvented the  prints as Woven Prints that you can now visit on my flickr site at
Here are a few samples of my colored pencil giclees

A Walk in the Woods

Many years ago, a group of friends of mine and I were romping in the woods to see what we could find.  These images document  some of  the 'things' we found.  First there were black and photos,  then there was photoshop which still baffles  me.  And just recently I found picasa.   Together all three create magic.
