This is Joseph in the Old Testament, where the story begins in Genesis 37. He was sold into slavery by his brothers. He was unjustly put in prison, but then by interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams suddenly was catapulted to second to Pharaoh to save Egypt and his family  from the coming famine. It’s all on the coat that I painted. At the bottom right, is the word “forgiven.” Joseph forgave his brothers even though they caused all sorts of bad things to happen to him. He said God put me here in Egypt to save lives. The visions above  him are about the 2 dreams he had that spoke of his brothers bowing down to him, which eventually came true.

Giclees are prints done on 100% rag paper or canvas, and archival inks. You can almost not tell these prints from the original, they retain their value, and a limited quantity of them are printed. At this time, they are unframed. I can frame them for an additional cost, but it would depend on which frame, the kind of glass, and whether you want a double matt or a spacer to keep the pastel from touching the glass. These look like a painting in a frame, with no matt. You cannot tell the spacer is there. Oils or acrylics painted on canvas can be giclees also, but they don’t need glass, and these canvas prints can be stretched on a wood frame, like a regular oil. They can be a wrap-around frame,( the canvas is wrapped around a wooden stretcher hence you can hang it without a conventional frame), or framed in the conventional way. This includes getting a print of the painting on canvas and a protective coating. If the order is for a print on canvas rolled up and mailed in a tube.

Canvas Prints coated with a protective coating, and canvas stretched on a 3/4″wood stretcher, canvas, painted on the sides and wired for hanging.

Giclee prints on 100% rag paper ( there is no acid as in regular paper, so it lasts a long long time.

Larger prints can be done. Email for pricing. There is an additional cost for acrylics or oils mounted on a wooden frame. Sizes may vary slightly depending on the painting

Please call (816) 444-4933 or email if you are interested in purchasing a painting or print (giclee priced according to size).
