Status: Unframed

GALLERY LIST PRICE:  $150.00

Each reproduction is created using UV stable pigment based archival inks on Premium Picture paper, designed for the highest quality professional images, color intense, 10 mil, heavy weight, water resistant, acid-free. This unique paper provides instant drying and water resistant properties, eliminates smudging and fading, while the acid-free base materials ensure that each Inkjet Giclee print will still look great years from now.

What is the difference between a GICLEE Print

and a Poster or Standard Quality “ART PRINT”?

SURFACE:  ALLOWS MUCH MORE INTENSITY of COLOR SATURATION!  Posters and typical art prints use less expensive papers that do not absorb the vibrant intensity of the artists’ application of colors.  GICLEE PRINTS as described above DO!! 

NUMBER OF INKJETS and TYPE of INKS used:  A typical print; even most lithographs are produced with a limited number/range of color inkjets.  Using archival inks and a much more effective replication process with more inkjets and colors;  the variables and details of each work are much better represented in accordance with how the original artist painted them.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:  Wendie Busig-Kohn aka WBK, Introduction by Patrick Phelps, Board Member ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc.:

When the Founder of ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. began her mission to "inspire change with every brush stroke", by creating and hosting on-line charity auctions, she never thought she would become the top selling artist!  In fact, she never perceived herself as an  artist!

After the death of her mother, she had this idea; determined to market Fine Art and continue in her mom's footsteps of supporting as many viable charities as possible.  For several years, she collected works from all over the world, works that have been showcased and applauded in the most famous museums and galleries.

In 2011, she suffered a mild stroke, leaving her left side totally paralysed.  Depression set in, as she "felt useless".  Normally, she volunteered at least 100 hours each week, to this mission.

Determined to inspire her to try something new, I went shopping for a wide variety of art supplies.  It did not matter how, it only mattered that she would simply play with colors and maybe even forget about the pain for a while.

Three years later, she became the best selling artist on ART4GOOD Auctions!  "My early works were really horrible", she recalls.  "But, I did discover that when I immersed myself into creativity, I forgot about the pain.  I learned that by shifting into more right brain activity while painting, I found a sanctuary, a retreat from pain!", said Wendie.  She became an advocate for the "art of healing".  

Soon thereafter, her works were also published in a series of books; eight in total, also an effort to raise awareness and contribute to various causes.  Her poetry was also featured in five of those books too!

In 2014, she began to design for "OFF THE WALLS" Wearable Art and more!  Her design collection, now planned for its 2015 debut, now includes:  Art Tees, Shift Dresses, Handbags, Watches, Rockin' Shirts, Scarves, Skirts, Kimonos, Home Decor Items,  and Beach/Yacht wear too!

Well, miracles do happen, but Wendie Busig-kohn still suffers from Systemic Lupus and Fibromyalgia.  "The ole gal just doesn't go out anymore", she will tell you.  "My focus is to do what I can, whenever I can, via social media".
