This is an image of the Halfmoon, Henry Hudson's ship, with the city of Albany in the background.
The old and the new in this image.....gives it a special interest. I painted this image plein air on the banks of the Hudson on the Troy side. I was prepared for a magnificent composition...what I was unprepared for was the cannon shot from the Halfmoon.
As it came into the Harbor, the city fired off its water cannon and the halfmoon fired its cannon. The sound reverberated off the buildings. It was loud! Some how, I nervier thought of Henry Hudson's ship, built for exploration, would also house a number of cannon.
The original is 9x13 approximately
I am limiting this Gicleť Print run to a modest
quantity....a total of 400. Each print is personally signed by me on the back
and numbered on the front....making each print truly unique and one of a kind
piece of artwork!
It would be a sophisticated piece to add to any fine art collection, or the perfect stand out work of art to start one!
Our Gicleť prints are high resolution, digital prints made with archival inks and papers. Gicleť (pronounced "zhee-clay") is a French term meaning "to spray", describing the digital printing process. Digital color control is more accurate, with greater opportunity for artistic interaction.
Gicleť prints are a recognized fine are print category like lithographs and serigraphs. Gicleť printing is considered by many to be the world's best technique for reproducing original works of art. Made with artists' materials, gicleť prints look and feel like the original art.
There is a difference between making an exact reproduction of an original painting and making a "digital creation". The cost and complexity of professionally produced gicleť prints often lead to compromises, with results that bear faint resemblance to the originals. We have taken the time to make sure every print we offer is as close to the original painting as possible.
Knowledgeable collectors have been amazed with the side-by-side comparisons, often unable to tell the original from the print. We feel our gicleť prints are among the finest anywhere.
All prints are limited editions, signed and numbered. Our prints are made with 100% archival acid free watercolor paper. They come in a cherry float frame, that stands for table top use or hang's traditionally. The print is floated between two sheets of glass..
There will only be 400 gicleť prints made and framed for this edition.
