This painting depicts a restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan called the Prickly Pear. The restaurant is still there (delicious!), however, the vines and street now look very different. This painting captures the original beauty of the restaurant, old chocolate shop next door and the hanging vines on the building.
This item is a very high quality print of the original painting. The original was digitally scanned at an Ann Arbor printing house just after completion in 2010, capturing every detail of its original beauty.
There are two editions of prints depending on the size:
Size 24" x 16" is a limited edition of 850 prints.
Size 18" x 12" is a limited edition of 1,250 prints.
The prints are printed and packaged in-house by the artist herself using her own professional, state-of-the-art Canon wide-format printer. Each print is printed on very high quality cold-pressed, 100% cotton, textured matte paper (similar to heavy-weight watercolor paper) meant for fine art prints. The paper is acid and lignin free and is an outstanding archival material.
Each print is signed and numbered by the artist.
The prints include a certificate of authenticity, a handwritten note from the artist (or your custom message for gifts) inside a branded mini envelope, and a branded postcard with information about the collection.
Artwork Only — This option includes just the print itself, which comes rolled, packaged in a plastic sleeve tied with a bow, and shipped in a sturdy tube. It is the least expensive option, though the print will need to be taken to a frame shop for proper finishing. This option is best for clients who would like to select their own mat-board and frame design to suit their decorative needs.
Matted — This option includes the print safely adhered to a pure-white double mat-board. The prints arrive ready-to-frame for standard sized frames (16" x 20" frames can be purchased at Target, Walmart, etc.) and the client is free to purchase their own custom frame. The prints are matted, packaged in a large plastic sleeve and ship in a large flat box. This option is best for clients who would like to balance cost and design freedom as the artist offers her matting services for a lower price than the typical frame shop.
