©2017, 22" by 14.5", Watercolour, Pencil
The subject of this painting is located across the bay from my home on Chemong Lake. I took the picture on which it is based in Autumn of 2017, just after they had lowered the water level in the lake for the winter. I was struck by how lonely this dock looked, hanging so far out of the water, surrounded only by the mist and the reeds.
I tried an experiment with this painting to try and highlight the misty feel. I left the sky and the water completely white, and used pencil to draw the reeds farthest to the right, the ones that are the most obscured by the fog.
Reproductions of my art are available printed either on paper or canvas. Both formats are signed by me, the artist, and are high quality, full-colour prints of a high resolution scan or photograph of the original painting. All prints are inspected to ensure that the colours match the source and created using inks that are guaranteed to resist both fading and UV light.
These are printed on high quality paper to give them the look and feel of the original painting. In terms of the dimensions listed, please keep in mind that they are approximate. Since I custom mat and frame the prints myself, I reproduce them at specific sizes so that when they are matted to standard matting dimensions, the mat-board borders are consistent widths on all sides. It’s because of this that I highly recommend that you upgrade to the matted version (seriously, go do it now).
Now, if you've ordered a print that is not a standard sized when matted, then I highly recommend that you go back and order it in a frame. As described in the sister section Frames, I do all my own framing using reclaimed wood and am affordable.
If you want to avoid matting and framing altogether, then I suggest that you order the canvas option. I stretch the canvases myself using reclaimed wood and, with a profile that is an inch and a half thick, the art will make a strong statement on your wall.
