Birds of Paradise

Most of us know of the Bird of Paradise flower. But not many are familiar with the airplane of the same name that made the first flight between North America and Hawaiʻi. With their navigation devices malfunctioned and guiding by the stars, the pilots overshot their destination on Oʻahu and were heading past the main Hawaiian Islands. In the lower horizon, they saw the steadily blinking flash of the Kīlauea Lighthouse. They recalculated their course and landed safely at Schofield field on Oʻahu, crediting the Lighthouse with saving their mission, and their lives.

 

MATTED PRINTS

The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual print. Matted prints are measured by outside matte dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard sized frames.

 

FULL-SIZE PRINTS

Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14” or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than a matted print.

 

Matted and Full-Size prints come in clear protective sleeves with foam core backings.

 

GICLÉE

Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting, and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.

 

You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which add an extra 1-5/8" all around with the image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée, and can be stretched at a frame shop near you as a contemporary option to framing.

 

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

International orders will have added postage that will be reported to buyers for approval. International shipping is typically two to three times normal shipping.
