Original Art and Embellished Giclée Prints
by Merle Braley
“When a painting I’m working on pulls me into a deep contemplative or meditative state; when I absolutely love the painting as it is; then and only then do I know it’s complete. As an artist, my aim is to create paintings that speak deeply both to me and to others.
“When an original painting is ‘complete’, I then create archival quality giclée prints of my originals and embellish them, often with acrylic paint, semi-precious stones and gel gloss, so that every print is unique and original. I put as much love and attention to detail into the creation of each giclée print as in the original painting.”
