Thursday, June 23, 2016, 09:11 PMMary Klein spent more than two years of painting a 10-by-6-foot oil painting of St. Thomas More for the newly named St. Thomas More Catholic Community church in St. Paul. The church, formerly known as St. Luke, has been a landmark on Summit Avenue in St. Paul for over one hundred years. The painting features British St. Thomas More and his family.
We are thrilled to be making the Giclee prints of the painting for Mary. She is a very fine artist and has created a genuine 21st Century masterpiece fitting for this Renaissance lawyer and Lord High Chancellor of England during the tumultuous reign of Henry VIII.

Wednesday, October 7, 2015, 01:16 PMRed Wing artist Peggy Simonson recently asked us if we could enlarge one of her watercolor paintings from 16X24 inches to 32X48 inches for a collector who wanted a large work for her wall. Peggy's painting of the famous Red Wing boat houses enlarged beautifully. We have had great success enlarging works, particularly watercolor paintings. In fact we normally scan everything now at a higher resolution than needed for a 100% reproduction because artists are finding a good market for larger pieces. Given the more limited size of watercolor paper and the difficulty in painting a watercolor four feet wide it is a great solution for those discriminating buyers who want large art work.
This weekend you can catch more of Peggy's work at the annual Fall Festival in Red Wing. You will find her in booth 102 right next to the Kettle Corn. Red Wing Fall Festival
Monday, September 21, 2015, 06:50 PMMidge Bolt creates large scale photographic works on cloth where she combines her contemporary photos with historic images of the same scene. Midge and Doreen Gunnink are entered in the ArtPrize Competition in Grand Rapids, MI. Sep 23 - Oct 11, 2015. The three pieces surround a fountain at the Amway Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids. Each of the images features a view (historic and contemporary) of a nearby scene. We printed the six pieces that make up each of the pairs in three works.

Good luck Midge and Doreen.
