Download and PRINT this beautiful painting I call Phoenix, after the bird who arises from its own ashes. The original was 12 x 16″. It was sold at an art auction charity event, where 50% of the total went to help with cancer patients’ everyday care. This amazing charity is called InspireHealth.
SIZES: The file prints crisp images up to 9 x 12″ for viewing up close. Good for viewing on the wall (such as while sitting on the couch or at the dining room table) up to 12×16″ or even 16×20″. You can choose your size. Most common and easy to find affordable framing for are 11×14″, 8×10″, 5×7″, and 4 x 6″.
SURFACES: You can use your home colour photo printer or bring the file to your favourite print shop. Costco does great quality photo prints, quick and low-cost. Art print shops can get you the highest quality print on archival paper of your choice (or even on canvas!) if you prefer quality over convenience. I use Opus Art Supplies for my highest quality prints.
WHY buy a PRINT?
Downloading a painting can be a great option for a gift in a hurry. It’s yours as soon as the purchase is complete.

For more on the story behind this painting, which is part of my Renewal Art project, see my post Phoenix….
I’ve included some mock-ups, so you can see what the painting might look like in your home. (Keep in mind, I’m still working on my Photoshop skills, but I hope you get the idea.)
