Artwork Digitizing & Copies

Artist Karen Coe with one of her paintings I had the privilege of digitizing. Yes I do digitize large prints! This is actual size, to give you an idea how big it is the middle painting is 36″ long by 24″ high, then the hide and the frame.

When I get a call from an artist about their artwork the call goes something like this..

“Hi do you copy artwork”
Yes
“Large work”?
Yes
“Really large work”?
Yes
“Like something around 11×14 or 16×20”?
Yes
“Oh”

Many people are shocked when they find out that I can copy original artwork so artist’s can make copies of them. Seeing that they have been told by other places that they can only do originals that are 8×10 or smaller. Well I can digitize LARGE, REALLY LARGE originals. I can digitize any size from wallet size to 12 feet tall in my studio and larger if I should go on location. How about the size of the side of a building!

Another baby leaving home

Another baby ready to leave home. This one is heading to Montreal, QC. Got it all packaged up yesterday to get a shipping quote from Canada Post and find out it is 2″ to long for them to ship, so I have to repackage it. Then I have an artist at the studio today after I unpacked it that tells me that she ships larger prints with them. So frustrating that CP changes their requirements depending on where you ship from. Oh well, I will repack the print next week and try again.

Lethbridge High Level Bridge, another baby leaving home!

As an update, it took me two days of cutting up a box till it was the right size and was sturdy enough to ship my baby in. Got it all packed and took it in for a price quote on shipping. After the client approved the shipping price I then took it in to ship it and was told that the prices went up. Funny thing was that the cost to ship was less but the cost of insurance was more. So now it is on it’s way to Montreal and its new home. I am always nervous till the print arrives. Yes it has insurance but I don’t want the client to have to use it.

Safe trip my print!!!!!

Mountain Frame

So this past Saturday I made another mountain frame. I like the ones without a back but I wanted this one to have a picture behind it, after all I am a photographer 🙂 Made the frame, stained and painted it and took it with me to the studio. Then I started going through my files to see what I wanted to put behind the mountain frame.

Found a really nice picture of Red Rock Parkway from this past summer. It was PERFECT!!! I resized and cropped it and was getting ready to print when I thought I should look at a few more and BINGO. I hit on the best picture yet for my mountain frames. My son and I were in Waterton this past fall and we stopped at Maskinonge. It was a perfect day with snow, blue skies and blue water. I shot a few dozen pictures and made a really cool pano, from that series one picture stood out and was saying I will look great in a mountain frame.

Now my issue is that I have another frame I don’t want to sell 🙂 Oh well as soon as it warms up I have another idea for a frame and will make another one like this one and try one with my new idea as well.

Mountain shelf
I like them without anything on the shelves

But I like them even more with items that have a significance to them.

Mountain shelf hung on the wall at the studio, I do like!!!!!

If you are interested in a mountain frame I do sell them. At this time I have three at the studio – two without pictures behind them and this one. This would look amazing in a den, living room, bedroom, office or cabin.
