"Starting Light" - Botanical Art
Metal prints are always a conversation piece. The lab uses high-heat technology to fuse your image into the eco-friendly, 100% post-consumer recycled ChromaLuxe aluminum surface for incredible visual depth and luminosity. Metal prints are available in High Gloss, Mid-Gloss, Satin, Sheer - Glossy and Sheer - Matte surfaces but I only use High Gloss.
Each image is individually produced upon ordering. The total production time for metal prints could take up to 15 business days.
Paper prints, as presentation and demand as grown, I only offer metal prints directly from the website and 7X10 traditional paper print. If you prefer traditional print no offer on the website please contact Oscar for pricing via text at 773-315-6842 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Oscar offers prints with a 3-inch white mat and the image sizes are 12X18, 20X30 and 28X42.
About the image:
Starting Light is a limited edition of 250 images.
At the beginning of 2013, I was having problems with both of my knees. I could barely walk and was having a hard time standing. "Starting Light" was taken late in September 2013. After I walked a good portion of the Chicago Botanic Gardens, I ventured to the waterfall section and walked to the top of a small hill where, to my surprise, I found the water lily pond pictured here. It seemed as if this section did not get any direct sunlight, but some rays barely coming through between the foliage of the surrounding trees created a peaceful feeling, reminding me that hope is never lost.
