"Like any bird watcher, I'm thrilled by a sighting of the furtive sora. This picture was developed from notes of the rails' visit to a muddy corner of New York's Central Park a few years ago. I offer these cryptic little charmers as an answer to the question I often hear, "What good is that swampy patch?"

Fine Art Giclées—Giclées (pronounced jhee-clays) are produced using high-tech printing equipment that sprays millions of digitally-matched archival ink droplets per second onto a canvas surface. Giclée printing has become the “gold standard” in the past 10 years—an important part of the print world. This blend of technology and fine art looks so much like the original work that even astute collectors do double takes. Giclées on canvas are meant to be enjoyed without glass. The actual image size is 14" x 11", and the framed size is 17.625" x 14.5". The full color reproduction is printed on canvas made especially for giclee printing. Mounted and/or framed prints usually ship in approximately 14 business days.
