Learning to Art

By Maggie

I've been so excited to make art, and I was blessed to have the opportunity to make these custom large-scale prints for a friend that lives in Tiburon. It was a great learning experience, in terms of the effort that goes into printing a huge image on high-quality cotton paper and THEN finding a framing company that could handle such a large print. 

Fun facts - Did you know that for large-scale prints, the glass can be so heavy it will rip the drywall off?! I did not. So most large-scale prints actually don't use glass. But it's important to ask for glare-resistant plexi or a similar material... which can be hard to find.

I'm so happy with how they turned out, and I hope Lara is, too. I appreciate the opportunity to make art, to learn about the process, and to share these designs with friends in this community. I'm hoping to make more of these, in addition to the other projects I've got going on :)
