About This Image

My mother, in her day, was a very successful education software consultant. "Have you hugged your client today?" was her line, not mine.

She always had about 6-10 Blue Chip clients on board at one time. Companies like Shell, Exxon, Coco-Cola etc.

And no matter what kind of day she was having, EVERY DAY she would make some kind of effort to demonstrate to each and every client that... she cared, that this stuff mattered, that she was willing to go the extra mile.

And it worked. It certainly paid for me and my sister's education.

One day, Mom decided to retire. So she sold the company in order to pay for the retirement. The guys she sold it to looked good on paper; but in the end, they didn't have the "Daily Hug" ethos. Instead, they had the "We're a bunch of arrogant, Old-School, political, entitlement-obsessed Alpha Males who like banging our dicks on the table as often as possible".

Those losers ran the company into the ground within 18 months.

Even though she had already left the party to take up gardening instead, poor Mom was heartbroken...

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
