Winter art printsSnowy Lane

As Valentine’s Day approaches, have you selected a gift for your special someone? Now is a good time to just get it done! Here are a couple of prints, winter prints, that may serve your print purposes, this season. There are several strong contenders in this collection, one that is seen in my Photo Prints Gallery. I am pleased to make these prints available, now, and would remind you that with an eMail sign-up, one gets 20% off any first print, my idea of a Mid-Winter Sale. As you notice, some of these prints are picture-post card in their style and presentation. Others, such as the one below, are more abstract in their portrayal of winter. In this, the color, striations of tone and composition make it a very refreshing commentary on the nature of winter– I would hope!

Below, see another application of this same image. Note how adaptable it is. Note also, that the color palette in the print goes very well with narrow palettes of wall decor, perhaps dark, or even neutral in their overall expression….as well as in colorful room environments where the black-and-white characteristic of the image is dramatically contrasted against any color in the room.

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, still early in this new year – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, should you be in the humor for a very different sort of image, how about a Honey-Bee print? Or, a golf print? A lighthouse print? In February 2023, 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 our now finding ourselves about half way through the winter season.

Materials: Prints are all produced using high-quality materials; pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, now, as seed catalogs arrive in the mail, auguring in an exciting season, just ahead. What better way to celebrate this winter season than…by purchasing a lighthouse print, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print, or golf print…unique gift choices for any 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, yes. Yes, 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. This will accord you an opportunity to see your logo in position, at scale, on your print. #brandednonprofits, #brandedposters, #americanaposters and #brandedcorporateposters are hashtags I will incorporate to identify this program, on-line. Good anytime of year.

Exhibit Page: 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.

Build your collection? Have some creative fun building your print collection this year! Try a new Americana Poster print purchase if you have not purchased a print from this Gallery, before. Do see my promotional video on Youtube! Do you like art about chicks and chickens? This winter, if you’re ready for some authentic Chicken art, check out my available prints. Take advantage of my Mid-winter Print Sale, currently available. 20% off first print…with your email sign-up!

“Business Advice” for day: Lent is not too far off. Lent for me is a season of reflection, of self-evaluation, of examining life and preparing, in anticipation of the coming of the Lord on Easter Sunday and all this holds for Christians, the world over. So we hold in our imaginations a number of ideas in motion at this time of year….winter passing, winter weather, seed catalogs arriving, Lent about to arrive, the lengthening of days. We hold all this and much more in our heads…at once, do we not? In business, as in life, similarly introspective steps must take place to stay on top of almost any business circumstance. What is it now, today, that must be done to ensure not only survival, but prosperity?

Contact points are all viewable on A special thanks for your interest and support of my effort. Here, early in the New Year, may you conquer adversity, build prosperity, maintain your health, and live out a generous and productive year.

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.
