Buckets and Chickens
By Kadir Nelson


From Thunder Rose by Jerdine Nolen, little "Thunder Rose" helps out around the ranch by carrying buckets full of milk, chicken feed and water, all at the same time! This child is no ordinary child. For Rose has the "power of thunder and lightning corsing through her veins" and grows up to wrangle cowboys, lasso clouds and calm rampaging twisters. A tall tale to treasure.

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.
