All finished! The Faerie Glen garden image completed!

We have come a long ways!
 In real time it took me nearly two full months to complete this painting working 9-12 hours a day! Phew!
 Fortunately you don't have to wait that long!  For our final review here is where we left off last time: 

and now here it is full and complete: 

 I hope you can just overlook the watermark at the top of the image. I have to put that in finished images to protect them.

 I'm tempted to tell you about everything that was added or done to the image to bring it to completion but it might be more enjoyable for you to view the two images yourself and compare them. Have fun!

   This image will indeed be getting produced as a puzzle and I'll be sure to let you know when it comes out. Also, if anyone is interested in getting this image as a limited edition print, I can make that happen. (the watermark will NOT be on finished reproductions, obviously!)
If anyone has any questions, I'll do my best to answer...but I'm back in the field now making 3-D faerie houses and having fun making images that will hopefully bring a teesie bit more Light into your world! Thanks for sticking with me thru this process!

This is AMAZING! Congratulations for finishing, it's so beautiful. I followed the entire process. You are incredible talented. Can I just live there? Blessings to you and keep up the good work. You make the best fairy houses! <3

Thank you Naviana! I'm so glad you enjoyed seeing the whole process. Yes, I want to live there too! I don't know if you saw this or not but in the image, up on the bridge, there is a young person peering thru the railings looking down and SEEING what we see. It is a reminder that we are all young at heart and have eyes to see if we want to!

Bright Blessings to you!

Hi Charlene,

Thank you for your inquiry and I'm so pleased to hear that you like the image! I work with a fabulous printer who does beautiful work. Prints are published on watercolour paper with archival inks or on stretched, sealed canvas. Because we can do the printing on demand, the prices vary with the desired size of the print. The prints done on artists canvas are sealed with an invisible UF protecting finish and then are stretched onto wooden frames. These work very nicely because they require no additional framing. The prints on watercolor paper provide a smoother finish and perfectly rendered details but they will need to be framed to hang on the wall. If you want to purchase multiple prints for wholesale pricing I can do that as well.

The best way to get a specific quote is to send me an email with your desired size or if you are working on a budget, let me know your range and we'll work out what will work best for you. I would be very happy to set up a print order for you, just contact me via email.

Looking forward to hearing from you and assisting you with getting the print(s) you desire!
