"Millennial Skaters" - Matted Print

\"Millennial Skaters\" - Matted Print


The original Chicago oil painting titled "Millennial Skaters" is 36x24". This limited edition paper print is available half size, 18x12". When the weather in Chicago is below 20 degrees it can be deceptively sunny and bright out. This was one of those days in late December around 2:00 when the normally crowded skating rink in front of The Bean in Millennium Park was rather sparsely populated with chilly 20somethings most likely home on a college break.

*Note that this is my only painting of "Cloud Gate" AKA "The Bean", the iconic city sculpture by the artist, Anish Kapoor. In general I feel that is very easy to make a nice painting of someone else's art. In this case at least The Bean is off to the side as a backdrop to the skating rink and not the focal point. I wanted this to be more of a portrait of the McCormick Tribune Plaza and Ice Rink.

This print includes a mat pre-cut to fit a 24x18" frame in soft greyish beige as shown.

Giclée printing is currently the highest quality standard for printing single or limited edition prints on paper or canvas. The term "giclée" (pronounced "ZHEE-CLAY") is a French word meaning "to spray." Giclée prints are created by spraying millions of droplets of ink onto your choice of fine art substrates.

Unlike lithographs and serigraphs, giclée prints have undergone extensive third party fade testing. While the predicted display life depends on many variables, giclée prints made with wide-gamut pigmented inks are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fade.

High grade, smooth finish paper is used for prints, picking up all the detail of the original canvas. Only 100 are produced in this series. Each paper print is signed by me in pencil in the lower left-hand corner with title in middle and edition number in the right. My limited edition prints are imaged and printed by Osio Brown Editions.
