celebrates our increasing awareness of the interconnectedness of life.
The setting is a small beach town called Jacmel, in the southern part
of Haiti. The High Priestess is the guardian of creatures large and
small, symbolized by the doves and the leopards in the painting. The
High Priestess is both a majestic and magnetic work of art.

luster. Printed on archival canvas substrate with archival inks. Canvas

What is a Giclee?
A Giclee (pronounced Zhee-Clay) is a very
high end digitally produced archival quality print. Giclees are printed
on archival substrates, such as Arches Cold Press watercolor papers,
Somerset watercolor papers or specially prepared canvases, with archival,
light fast inks, at a very high resolution. Depending on the medium of
the original work, giclees are printed on paper or canvas. Watercolor
paintings render very well on the watercolor papers, and oil paintings
printed as canvas giclees have the rich tonal quality of original oil
paintings. Canvas giclees are also coated with a special finishing media
to protect the surface. Canvas giclees are stretched and framed as one
would display an original oil painting. Watercolor giclees are typically
framed behind glass, as one would do with an original watercolor painting.
Giclees capture and reproduce the nuance and
splendor of the original work of art. Giclees are now found in MoMA and
The Louvre. Giclees are used when the original painting is too fragile
for exhibition. Giclees render very closely to the original work of art.
