What are Limited Edition Signed Prints?

My original watercolor paintings usually sell for a minimum of $4,000.00 making them too expensive for many collectors who enjoy and want to purchase my work. So, I decided to make them available as Limited Edition Signed Prints. Exactly what does this mean? Each print looks exactly like the original watercolor. Only the size is smaller than the original. I never make prints that are as large as the original art. It is printed as a Giclee on beautiful Hahnemule 100% Rag Paper. Each one is signed by me and is individually numbered. Making each one a fine collectible work of art that could increase in value.


What is a Giclee print?

The Definition : Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "Giclee" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt". In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.


Is a Giclee print a high quality print?

A Giclee print is a very high quality print. In fact, Giclee prints are commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.The print itself will probably be fade resistant for the lifetime of the owner and many generations to come.


Will My Limited Edition Signed Print Increase in Value?

Each print is individually signed and numbered. Which makes it a collectble. It can and probably will increase in value. However, like any art investment, I always recommend you buy something you love to look at. If over the years it increases in value, you have a win, win. If not, you still win because you owned a piece of art you get great enjoyment from.
