Get an up-close-and-personal view of the gold leafed, metallic sheen and texture in this original painting. I professionally scanned this original to reproduce the metallic properties of the gold leaf as closely as possible to the original. However, you won't see this close-up detail of the image on-line, unless you view portions of the painting in full-resolution, as in the cropped portion above.  I explain how to view full-resolution portions of all my images at my website a little later in this post.  It's really easy to do.  It's a feature built-into the site.

You will be amazed at the clarity of prints this high-resolution file will produce.  Photographing art for print is difficult, but reproducing gold leaf has been a real challenge. Prints of this image will reproduce the metallic shimmer and texture of the gold leafing amazingly. Can you imagine how awesome this print will look on shiny metal? 

To see full-resolution portions of my paintings on-line, click on any painting from the home page listing at my  website:  After clicking the image on the home page, the image appears larger on a separate page. Hover your mouse over the image and click on the framed area that appears. In a few seconds, a high-resolution close-up of that portion will appear -- you can see incredible details of the image. Move the mouse to different sections of the image for more high-res close-ups. It's the next best thing to seeing the original in person. 

The High-Res feature can only be accessed by clicking images from the home page-- it is not active once you've opted to look at the image in any of the print option modes, such as canvas prints or metal prints, etc. Looking at the images in High-Res mode will give you confidence in the print quality the image shows.

I wish I could show you on-line how dramatic the images reproduce on shimmering metal prints, but  photography for the web cannot capture the sleek, incredible shine of prints produced on metal -- you have to see them in person to witness the drama, depth and richness of colors.

You can see five of my wine metal prints displayed in the new Artisan's Gallery at the Roseburg Valley Mall, located at 1144 NW Garden Valley Blvd., #250, Roseburg, OR.  Here's the link to their website:

More great news!! My metal prints at Artisan's Gallery are priced the same as they are at my website! (after shipping is calculated for website orders).

For you or a wine enthusiast on your gift list, Customize your iPhone or Galaxy phone cover with my art! You can order a custom iPhone or Galaxy phone case with one of my wine or flora images printed on it at this website:  (The site mirrors my other website, but the smart phone covers are best ordered at this site.)  Just click on any of the art images and then scroll down to select the iPhone or Galaxy Cover print option.  Then select your iPhone or Galaxy model to fit your smart phone.  You can view just how the image will appear on your smart phone. You can customize the size and position of the image on the case by clicking and dragging the image up or down or to either side and using the horizontal scroll bar to the right of the image to make the image larger or smaller.  The case color (white or black) will only be visible if you shrink the image so that it does not fill the entire case.  A warning will pop up to let you know that.  Each iPhone case comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

A note to save you time when choosing images for your smart phone cover:
Not all the images are going to look well in a smart phone format because key elements of the image may be hidden by the openings on your phone.  I tried a number of them to see how they appear in phone cover format.  Keep in mind where your phone model openings are in relation to the image.  Some of the images can be adjusted to the left or right or up and down to yield a better look.  It's something you can play around with a bit to come up with a unique image for the wine loving, phone user on your list.  It just might be YOU!  Merry Christmas!
