Winter Wall DecorCentral Church Window Detail

This is one of the finest examples of stained glass I have ever seen. The image is a detail of the entire stained glass panel, one that tells the story of “The Beginning,” “The Alpha,” the arrival of the Christ in human affairs. After many years, when the sun rises from the east in the morning and this glass window is all lit up, I never cease to be moved by the shear artistry in the expression. Prints sold utilizing this image will mean a significant contribution to my church to benefit the Gallery Committee, celebrating local artists and their work. Your enthusiasm and support is always welcomed.

By comparison, below, please see the famous verse from John 3:16 expressed typographically– no images of any sort other than type, to convey the meaning and spirit of the culmination of Advent and the arrival of the Christ. This is but one in a series of typographic studies designed to exemplify meaning in both the old and new testaments. Images such as this reproduce well on paper, canvas, and also acrylic and Aluminum.

Question for you: For any occasion, have you ever purchased a single, original, graphic print? An art print? A photo print? Probably not. Most haven’t, in my view. Maybe right now, here, as the new year is upon us – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, how about a Honey-Bee print? Or, a golf printA lighthouse print? In Advent, most especially, lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, to give a print can be a joyful experience…even in trying times… such as now. When I give a print, it is most often a joyful experience! In these testy, tumultuous times, think about giving an original print especially in light of the Holy Day season, a gift print, to some special person in your life.

Materials: Prints are all produced using high-quality materials; pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as this Christmas season moves rapidly toward the arrival of the New Year, 2023. What better way to celebrate upcoming NEW YEAR than…by purchasing perhaps a lighthouse print, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print, or golf print…unique gift choices for a friend or relative, perhaps…a Veteran.

Customize your selection. Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site include: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff, an under-appreciated feature. Then, you can choose your size, your material, your matte, your frame and your hanging hardware…right from my site, right here…a simple proposition. Your selected print will arrive ready to hang.

Americana Posters: Of these poster prints many of which were designed in the aftermath of 9.11.01, you may ask, “Can I brand my Americana posters?” To this question, the answer is decidedly, yesYes, I can brand these posters for you – contact me with questions. In short, your logo can be added at a discrete size to the lower right corner of each poster. I will show you a proof prior to production, one you can approve in every detail. #brandednonprofits, #brandedposters, #americanaposters and #brandedcorporateposters are hashtags I will incorporate to identify this program, on-line. Good anytime of year.  

Exhibit Page, New! Thank you for your steadfast, enthusiastic support of my Exhibit page, introduced in early 2022, designed to show off examples of my original George Delany Art images as they might appear when matted, framed and hung on a wall.

“Business Advice” for day: I don’t have any business advice this week, except to say, slow down, step back, take a deep breath, sit by the fire, pick up a good book, mix up some warm cider with rum, or perhaps a glass of Egg Nog, and meditate a moment on the reason for this season. I would observe the condition of our world to be approximately what it was at the time of the arrival of Christ all those 2000+ years ago. I intend to do just this, beginning tomorrow.

Been in the visual arts all professional life, am eager to post examples of Instagram prints, photo prints, graphic and fine art (painting) a disciplined fashion...signs of the times, if you will.
