This beautiful oil painting depicts the sign of a well-known Italian restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. Niki was just 18 years old when she painted this! The painting is meant to evoke memories of pleasant, summer dining on downtown streets, while appreciating the vibrant, bold colors of this particular restaurant sign. Next to the Italian restaurant Palio is another well-known restaurant called The Real Seafood Company. Niki paid close attention to detail in the signage, while remaining loose with her brushstrokes in the building and skyline. The piece is filled with character.

This item is a very high quality print of the original watercolor painting. The original painting is 20" x 16" and was digitally scanned at an Ann Arbor printing house in 2018 (ten years after Niki completed it in 2008), capturing every detail of its original beauty.

There are two editions of prints depending on the size:

Size 20" x 16" is a limited edition of 1,000 prints.

Size 11" x 14" is a limited edition of 2,000 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.

The artist has partnered with the online framing company Art to Frames from Brooklyn, NY to help save on framing. A coupon code for an EXCLUSIVE 15% DISCOUNT for the artist's customers is provided inside the small envelope in each package. Additionally, Niki includes a notecard detailing her personal framing tips to guide the customer through the process.
