Life Finds A Way


Life finds a way – the truth of abundant life will find you flourishing in the most unlikely places when it is God who plants you there!

As I meditated upon my first live painting in the Beyond Gold project, I kept sensing “upon this rock I will build my church”. Upon this foundation. Upon the glory and the blood. All that Beyond Gold represents is unity with firm foundations in Christ. It will rise up and the ‘tree of life’ will be firmly planted upon this rock.

When you’re painting prophetically, nothing happens by accident. As I was adding the final touches to the tree I ‘accidentally dripped’ red paint onto the rock. I paused to check, ok Lord, what are you doing here? He says: the foundation is the blood. Of course! And suddenly the painting has a deeper meaning. I grafted the “blood” into the tree and across the branches, making a cross. The colours gold and purple in the rock signify divine glory and royalty. Triumph comes when we keep our eyes on who He is and who we are.

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!
