Water Of Life

Certified Open Edition prints.
Water of Life is a personal prophetic painting.
As I painted, a prevailing calm took over and I sensed the cascade of water was the river that flows from the throne room and the phrase “the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations”. The presence of peace was strong.
I saw doves, and then geese flying in formation. This speaks into two aspects of the leadership journey. The dove represents the gentle leading of the Holy Spirit. In a flock of geese, there is no one leader, each bird takes turns at flying in the front, falling back into formation when they are tired. In this way, the flock conserves energy. Geese are not born with this ability; they learn it as they care for one another. This symbolizes being placed in a team, in a ‘flock’, where the synergy and energy of the team form an ease empowering you to perform the tasks ahead. There are six geese in this painting. Six biblically represents humanity and many governmental aspects of work and worship. It also represents a heart for people. The fruit of the tree is depicted in red, yellow, and orange, representing passion, happiness, and intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

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!
