Riverwalk Zion National Park – Giclee Print
Giclee From original watercolor of Virgin River near Zion National Park
About this Item
During the centennial year of Zion National Park, I spent lots of time exploring the trails, canyons, and peaks of the Park. Every time I go, it’s as if I am experiencing it for the first time. As I sketch along the trails or linger at the trailheads or summits, I enjoy hearing the comments of people who ARE experiencing it for the first time. No one goes to Zion and leaves disappointed. The subject of this painting is the pastoral side of the Virgin River. When it looks like this it lives up to its name. But there are plenty of times when its mighty waters thunder and crash through the canyon bringing tons of rock and foliage crashing down, and it seems like it should be called by a more trashy name. I’ve seen it both ways and I respect it in all its moods. But on this day, as I descended from a short hike to the Emerald Pools, it was acting like a lady. “Riverwalk Zion National Park” is reproduced from an original painting by Roland Lee.Using today’s latest Giclee printing technology, each print is individually created with archival inks on Arches archival paper, which is the same paper the original watercolor was painted on. Even though all pigment fades in time, Giclee prints have a projected life span of 80 years when kept from direct sunlight. The Giclees are released in an extremely limited edition of just 50 prints. When they are gone, no more will be printed. Each image is individually printed on order, then hand-inspected and signed by the artist. Because of this care, we need about two weeks from the time you place your order until we can ship the artwork.
