New giclee prints and updates to my web site

I spent most of the day making some much-needed updates to my web site. I can now offer giclee prints (on canvas and on fine art paper) of more of my paintings, which is something I've had people asking about for a while. Here is a link to the new page of my site, which I've called Prints & Gifts. I don't have all of them on there yet, but I was glad to get part of it set up today.
Here are pics of a couple of the paintings I can now offer as giclee prints:

From an original oil painting
This painting is one from my American Vistas series, which celebrates the diversity of wonderful landscapes which may be found across the US.

From an original acrylic painting
This painting depicts one of the dalmatians rescued by the Save the Dalmatians charity, for whom I often list my art. I will be donating $10 from the sale of each print to help these folks, who have a wonderful program for the rescue and medical care of senior dalmatians in need of loving homes.

I plan to add some of my jewelry and other creations to this new section of my web site soon.

Curious about Giclees?
Giclees are a modern means of producing reproductions of a painting which come as close as possible to capturing the color and feel of the original. The special archival pigments are designed to have a longevity which meets or exceeds that of traditional watermedia. Giclees make an affordable alternative to originals, making the artwork available at a fraction of the cost of the original painting. Sometimes they are signed and numbered, or enhanced by the artist to make each one unique. They should not be confused with images printed by home computer printers. Regular computer printer inks are not formulated the same way, and have not been specially designed to have the archival properties of true giclee prints.
