"Cruising"- 12x9" Chicago Painting Paper Print

\"Cruising\"- 12x9\" Chicago Painting Paper Print


This huge painting depicts the beautiful Summer lakefront from the vantage point of a boat looking back toward Navy Pier. It features a portrait of Lake Point Tower (to the left) and the John Hancock building. Taking a boat cruise of Lake Michigan is a must do activity for any visiting tourist us locals enjoy as well. Many of the larger cruising vessels docked at Navy Pier offer dinner, cocktails, and dancing while it's also a real treat to be invited to sail on one of the private boats docked a bit further south at the Chicago Yacht Club.

The painting is titled "Green River" for two reasons: first because Wacker Drive is kind of the Wall Street of Chicago, and secondly because we ceremoniously die the river green on St. Patrick's Day.

"Green River" is now available as a 12x9" giclee print. Giclee printing is currently the highest quality standard for printing single or limited edition prints on paper or canvas. The term "giclee" (pronounced "ZHEE-CLAY") is a French word meaning "to spray." Giclee prints are created by spraying millions of droplets of ink onto your choice of fine art substrates.

Unlike lithographs and serigraphs, giclee prints have undergone extensive third party fade testing. While the predicted display life depends on many variables, giclee prints made with wide-gamut pigmented inks are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fade.

High grade, smooth finish paper is used for prints, picking up all the detail of the original canvas. Only 100 are produced in this series. Each paper print is signed by Joy in pencil in the lower left-hand corner with title in middle and edition number in the right.
