Fall Prints “Bristol Aggie Floral“
This image, “Bristol Aggie Floral,” I snapped while touring the local agricultural school one fall afternoon, on a Sunday. The school, Bristol Agricultural, was in the midst of a $100M upgrade program at the time. The results, from my distant perspective, appear to be spectacular. I am so glad that we have such a resource in this locality. Here was an exhibit of floral presentations– this particular one stood out. I confess, the image grows on me over time. It is one that carries the attitude, flavor, colors of the holiday season in such an unusual way. As you consider prints you may purchase now, during holiday season, or later, do give this one some thought. You can see other seasonal prints in my Instagram Gallery, here.
Below you see the adaptability of this image, “Bristol Aggie Floral,” as it hangs distinctively on a kitchen wall. Imagine throwing together a beautiful salad, cutting up some vegetables, rinsing then pulling some greens apart, combining a variety on a platter…right below this image.
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 last month of the year is nearly 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 print? A lighthouse print? 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 holiday 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 November season moves rapidly toward the end of the year, 2022. What better way to celebrate upcoming holidays than by planning early, and getting a gift or two out of the way…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 even…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. #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, 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: Here just after Thanksgiving, on Cyber Monday, I’m told people all over our country are shopping on-line. Is this so? Today is the day for big sales . Today is the day to call maximum attention to goods and services most suitable for sale during this holiday season. Today is the day upon which legions of companies claim to depend in order to make some large percentage of their annual profit. Shop…now!, condensensed into a single day.
My notion is, post Thanksgiving, we would do well to carry the real spirit of this holiday into the Advent season; one of reverence, repentance and fasting. We do not need to sign on to any of the hype around shopping, consuming, gathering ever more stuff– many of us have enough stuff. In this context, the Advent season takes on a perspective much more in keeping with a simple life, a dignified life, a simple world, a simple planet, in which we may acknowledge each other rather than another ‘thing’ bought on sale in the rush after Thanksgiving.
With December comes the beginning of Advent, the Advent Season, the telling of the single story which more than any other binds western civilization together over 2000+ years— more so than any other. Let’s try this spirit on for size, today on Cyber Monday, shall we?
