There are places where Monk Seals and Sea Turtles come ashore and occasionally rest beside each other. Monk seals will snuggle up to anything as I learned the first time I slept on the beach outside my tent on Laysan Island in the Northwest Hawaiian chain. This painting was inspired by a photograph taken by George Balazs, Hawaiian sea turtle expert. The original photograph can be seen in the book I authored called The Hawaiian Monk Seal. It was a cloudy shot that I recomposed with a Honu I saw at Punaluʻu Beach, Big Island, Hawaiʻi. I painted the scene with a sunset setting. It was a great challenge to create the multi colored sunset reflections on the animals.

 

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.
