TRUNKS ART Prints - Now on Bamboo Paper!

One of the drawbacks to printing reproductions on paper (as opposed to canvas) is that you can lose some of the color brightness - and my work screams for its' POP! Although canvas is always the best way to go (because it allows me to add highlights and texture), it's a good idea to offer a 'paper option.' So, I now offer my work on canvas AND paper - bamboo paper, that is.

Here's a shot of a recent print of "Round 2" on mounted bamboo paper. Notice that this type of paper doesn't diminish the bright colors at all. Sweet! In the foreground you'll see that all of my artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity (CoA) along with the associated abstract.

Another good thing about printing art on bamboo paper is that you can mount it, frame it and put that baby under glass. Looks awesome! In this shot, you see another mounted print of "Round 2" on bamboo paper. This time, it's been nicely framed by my official framer: Museum Quality Framing in Camarillo.

TRUNKS ART has had many "Race Days" of his own...

San Francisco's "Bay to Breakers" - May 1996

Like I've been saying all along in regards to my latest piece, "Race Day"...I spent the better part of the 90's running races all over the U.S. When I came across this photo, I thought it was a perfect reflection of "Race Day!" In this particular race, there were 80,000+ runners - seriously! And I remember that I was near the finish line when this photo was taken - and I'm still in a crowd!!

TRUNKS ART: Embellishing "Race Day!" Hard work - but always worth it!

Embellishing a canvas print is more involved than you'd think. Adding color highlights is fun ('cause like I'm making it POP even more) but the whole texturing process can be challenging. In the end, it's always worth it because it adds even more color depth and gives it that "just finished look" - forever! How cool is that?

"Race Day" (32x24) is part of my A La Art Series. It's available on paper or canvas as limited edition prints (75). Licensing of this image is available as well.
