About This Image

When I was a boy, I spent a lot of time at summer camp, paddling around in old-school birchbark canoes, up in Northern Ontario.

Paddling an old canoe on a big lake is one of the most blissful experiences there is. My fellow campers and I never felt we were missing out, when we saw an occasional big motor boat speed by.

Fast forward three decades later. I now live by the water in Miami, the the yacht capital of the Americas. Million-dollar boats pass by my balcony pretty much every hour.

Do I envy the people on the yachts? Not really. I’m certainly not spending any time trying to make friends with boat owners, just so I can be invited on board one day. It seems like an awful lot of trouble for what you get.

Instead, I like to take a paddle board out, when I’m feeling like communing with the water. That’s plenty enough boat for me.

Though it’s nice to be able to do something “big”, like yachting, often the price is a certain loss of personal sovereignty. If you can keep things small and simple, you’ll be much happier in the end, don't you think?

A Word on Framing - Or, why you should let us do it for you:

Having spent your hard earned cash on a beautiful piece of art we strongly recommend professional framing.

Our limited edition giclée prints and serigraphs are printed on the best archival paper available. It is designed to last a very, very long time. We've seen clients who have taken both routes; inexpensive poster frames, which will ensure that the print will not survive the fullness of time, and top end, proper museum type framing.

We have contracted with a local framer, so that you can get a really high quality professionally framed print for probably half of what your frame shop would charge.

We frame our giclée prints using a high quality mat between the print and the plexiglass. For our larger serigraphs we make shadow box frames so that the artwork is set back from the UV plexiglass, and the artwork is floating, 'hinged' to a back board that will make it stand out and look amazing. The moldings we offer are 1" 5/8 (4.25cm) minimalist sleek black or white matte lacquered wood.

Special framing requests are welcome. Questions? email us at art@gapingvoid.com
