The Great Wave


Under the crest of a giant wave, the foam spills over. On a piece of metal left out in the elements to weather, I see Japanese artist Hokusai's "Under the Wave off Kanagawa." How many times I've had a dream like this? Tomorrow night, I'm grabbing a surfboard.

A dream nap with the sound of surf? Or at least a few winks "under the wave."

Catch a few winks when you know your room has the mesmerizing aura of the ocean. "The Great Wave" colors pop under modern Lumachrome Acrylic.

Such a relaxing ocean abstract for a hospital or office environment.

Abstract art offers the hope of calm and the reminder of relaxing times. Offer your clients a break in their stressful day with "The Great Wave" fine art print.

This is a day at the beach as far as a color palette.

Can't you just feel the surf? The pop of cerulean blue, the happiness of a summer sky, curious blue, and pale turquoise. And then there's that depth of midnight blue.

Take note of the swatches: Pantone 2103C, Pantone 6127C, Pantone 6122C, Pantone Dark Blue C, and Pantone 6149C. Photo © copyright by Ann Newman.

Lumachrome Acrylic Print

The Great Wave print

For contemporary abstract art, the intricate patterns need exacting details. The vibrant colors beg for illumination to deliver a sense of awe. The art itself should be the focus rather than a frame. And while the light may change in your room throughout the day, the subtle sheen from the surface should always be stunning. Lumachrome Acrylic prints offer a high-end option for a superior display that is frameless and ready-to-hang. Know that your art investment will retain brilliant colors for over 120 years and receive UV protection from the Lumachrome Acrylic surface.

The artwork is printed and then face mounted to crystal clear, scratch-resistant, non-reflective acrylic glass. An additional backer is placed behind the print for protection. The artwork is finished with a float mount frame on the back, invisible after hanging, which appears to float about an inch and a half off of your wall.

You'll be amazed at the depth, the luminance, and brilliant colors. Your visitors will swear that your print has three-dimensions.

Loose Fine Art Paper Giclee Print

The Great Wave print

Certain abstract pieces deserve a classic treatment. A fine art paper print allows you to customize your artwork with a frame, mat and glass of your own choosing. I offer unmounted giclee (pronounced "G-Clay") prints for these special pieces. Giclee printing offers high image quality with clarity you'll appreciate. You'll love the rich color, tones, and details. This method offers an archival print that will not fade for decades. There a several choices for fine art papers. Each paper and photo have unique characteristics, and I look forward to working with you on that selection. Your loose print arrives with a 1-inch white border so that your professional framer can assist you with matting, glass, and framing. The print is delivered rolled up without mounting, so handle with care and take to your framer as soon as possible.
