I’ve always thought of carnations as those flowers that you get to match your dress/your date’s tie when you’re attending your high school prom in the 1970s. And since I’ve never seen them growing in the DC area, I hadn’t photographed any carnations. And then late last year, I spotted some Viana carnations at my local floral wholesaler – and discovered a new way to look at carnations. Instead of those flowers that looked artificially colored – I suddenly was seeing flowers with amazing patterns along the edges of the petals – and knew that bunched together would provide some wonderful photographic opportunities. As I photographed several sets of carnations, I realized I was creating some amazing abstract photos by focusing in on the textures and patterns in the carnations. This is one of my favorite photos of some pink and white Antigua carnations
Traditional Matted Photographs
All of my photographs are available as traditionally matted images. I find myself drawn back to the classic look of a photograph with a white mat.
I print my matted photographs on an Epson 3880 professional photo printer using Epson archival paper and Epson pigmented inks. Displayed under glass, these photographs have an estimated print life of at least 80 years. These archival photographs are covered by my fade free guarantee.
My photographs are matted using acid-free mats and backing boards. Photographs matted to 11X14” and 12X12” are presented in a single white mat. Photographs matted to 10X20” and 16X20” are presented in a double white mat. All of my mats are cut to fit standard sized frames available online and at local art & craft stores.
Most photographs can be order in larger sizes. Please contact me about custom sizes of matted photographs.
Gallery-Wrapped Canvas Photographs
All of my photographs are also available as gallery-wrapped canvases. The canvas preserves all the fine details of the photograph while giving them a sense of three dimensions.
I print my gallery-wrapped canvases on an Epson 9800 professional photo printer using Epson archival canvas and Epson pigmented inks. A protective spray is added to each photograph giving it some added water resistance and UV protection. Current estimates are that this combination of canvas, ink and spray should last for at least 70 years. These archival photographs are covered by my fade free guarantee.
All gallery-wrapped canvases are shipped ready-to-hang.
Some photographs can be ordered in larger sizes of gallery-wrapped canvases. Please contact me about custom sizes of canvases.
