Now Is The Time


“Now Is The Time”


As we prayed before going live, I thought of the recent ‘artesian well painting’ with the seedling breaking the dry earth, and I also had an image of a flooded plain. The two pictures didn’t go together.

This painting surprised me. It began with a flood of gold through the centre. As I painted the sky, a mass of light and fire appeared on the canvas. Underneath I had written ‘Now it’s time’. I was also painting over a piece from 2008 called “Much Love” that depicted a stairway to heaven with words scratched into the paint ‘love’, ‘hope’, ‘faith’, so these words were popping through the new layers of paint.

I painted the living waters as the artesian basin under the land, but couldn’t see where the seedling should breakthrough. Then I suddenly saw seeds sprouting in the gold with extensive roots going deep into the Holy Spirit (living water). There were five. The seeds of grace!

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!
