In the Tide of Your Grace
Painted live, this painting is my spontaneous response to being immersed in worship. Joel Wiseman, speaking about his inspiration for writing the album title song, said he watched the ocean waves relentlessly continuously crashing on the beach, as they have done for thousands of years, and God spoke to him and said “that’s what my love for you is like”. As Joel watched he realised that nothing the sand did made a difference. The waves did not depend upon any response from the sand. This inspired the lyric:
With wave upon wave
You reveal Your face
All goodness and love
Overflow from Your heart
With wave upon wave
You crash on us again
In the tide of Your grace
to an ocean of praise
We dive in
Title: In the Tide of Your Grace || Artist: Wendy Manzo || Painted: 13/8/17 Wave Upon Wave album launch worship night @ DaySpring Church.
About Giclee printing.
We use the word ‘print’ so that we are easily understood, however, technically speaking, our prints are not prints at all. They are fine art reproductions of original works. The quality is so high that it is difficult to tell between the reproduction and the original.
The most critical part of reproducing artwork is Digital Capture and Colour Correction, so the photographic file provides the truest representation of the original. It’s not just using a good camera, but using the right camera with expertise and experience. Wendy’s artwork is captured using specialised techniques to ensure your reproductions will be colour correct and faithfully reproduce all the detail and tones of the original painting.
Giclee Reproductions are premium high-resolution digital images produced on museum quality, Canson 300-320gsm Cotton Rag (fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) printed with archival Canon Lucia EX 12-colour pigment high-performance inks. Canon Lucia EX pigment inks achieve an “under glass” permanence of 95 years for colour images.
Giclee can be confusing, as many may incorrectly assume that all digital printing is equal. Essentially Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is an invented name from the French word ‘le gicleur’ meaning ‘to squirt’. It was originally coined in 1991 to distinguish between common digital prints and the highest quality form of art reproductions using wide format inkjet printing technology. In 30+ years, this technology has advanced enormously, giving an even wider distinction between Giclee reproductions and digital prints. However, we still use the word ‘print’ because it is the common use of the term and it’s easier to say than ‘reproductions’.
Fine Art Giclee Reproductions should be protected by framing behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your art reproduction and read our blog article “Caring for your Fine Art” for information on ensuring your artwork still looks amazing for 3 – 4 generations. When you invest in a quality print you want it to last!
