Textured Photography for Sale by Jai Johnson

With the launch of Art and Canvas, you will have the opportunity to purchase Textured Photography by Jai Johnson.

Jai Johnson is a photographic artist that creates art that goes beyond the typical photography. Johnson paints on the original photographs to add hand painted textures and backgrounds, making textured photography. She also will sometimes use a variety of computer software to edit the art even further.

Jai Johnson’s passion for creating started when she was only five years old. She made a painting of pumpkins, and it ended up getting featured on a popular television show called “Romper Room”. She was ecstatic that the hostess said her name.

Johnson now lives in Tennessee, and spends most of her time outdoors in nature. She enjoys taking it all in, and capturing life’s most serene and peaceful moments. She says that this can range from the landscape and flowers to the birds and wildlife. Her favorite subjects often have fur and feathers, but rural country scenes and simple moments also capture her eye. When Johnson is not in nature, she is most likely in her studio working on her pieces. She enjoys adding paint to her photographs because she wants the image to move beyond the realm of one specific medium. She believes that this makes her work have its own unique style to it.

Land and Seascape Paintings for Sale by Anthony Casay

Anthony Casay is a brilliant painter of land and seascapes, but that is not all that he has been. Throughout his life, Casay was an actor, director, producer, and musician, all on top of being an artist.

Anthony Casay moved to Mexico City, with his family, at the age of 8. After living there for one year, Casay began starring in Les Miserables as a child actor. On the side, he would paint and even won several painting competitions, in the local exhibits. When he was 13 years old, Casay won first prize in a national competition with his Mural of the Execution of Mexican Leaders by French Soldiers. At the age of 17, Casay began to host, direct, and produce TV programs for children. He would use his designs and drawings as tools for learning and entertaining in these shows. It wasn’t long before he started playing drums for rock and roll bands, and even became a backup musician for Bill Haley and The Comets. Casay eventually started his own music group that toured around Central and South America.

Although busy, Anthony Casay still found the time to graduate with a degree in Diplomatic and Political Science. Casay was appointed as Mexican Consul to the city of Los Angeles, California, upon graduating. During this time, he continued painting and began to paint more and more. Casay was also inventive with his painting, and he developed his own glazing solution. This allowed the oil to flow across the canvas with the same ease that watercolors would. People began to praise his seascapes, and his work began to rapidly sell across the United States. Casay started shifting away from the political world, and into being a professional artist.

Clear, Landscape Photography For Sale, By Mike Jones Photo

Growing up in Cranford, New Jersey, Mike Jones never anticipated becoming a professional landscape photographer when he grew up.

At the age of 10, Jones’s father taught him how to use his old Pentax SLR camera, which is where the journey began. By the time he graduated from high school, Jones had begun using a 4×5 Grafix camera. He would use this camera, and a tripod, to take photos of the Rocky Shores in Maine during his summer vacations. He eventually got a job at a small weekly newspaper as the staff photographer. While working, he realized how much he truly loved photography and decided to major in it at college. After college, he moved on to a much bigger newspaper in Bricktown, NJ.

Mike worked for The Coast Star Newspaper for 6 years. In 2001, he decided it was time to leave. He wanted to travel around the country, and get the desire to travel out of his system. He spent three months, camping around the United States and visiting 18 National Parks. He realized that he could never go back. Jones sold his house and bought himself a large motor home to travel the country, and spend his days taking photographs of landscapes and nature.  While Jones has a large variety of photographs from his newspaper days, landscape photography has always been his true love. To this day, his home is wherever the camera takes him!

Sophisticated Still Life Photography and Digital Art by Cora Niele

Cora Niele is photographer and digital artist who grew up surrounded by cameras and photos every day. She spent a lot of her childhood in her father’s own photo studio. She was able to learn the technical side to photography, as well as the esthetical side.

When Cora originally started her own company, she began with botanical and garden photography. Overtime, she eventually began using her photographs to make digital fine art prints. She is inspired by nature and organic shapes so most of her work is either still life photos or digital fusions of her self-shot photographs and digital art. Niele’s goal is to help the audience distance themselves from their daily routine for just a moment.

Fantasy and Vintage Car Art Prints by Michael Fishel, For Sale

Bright. Colorful. Magical. Fantasy. These are some words that can easily describe the artwork of Michael Fishel. Michael Fishel is an illustrator that loves to paint with no restraints so that he can let his imagination flow onto the page.

Growing up, Fishel won a drawing contest with a drawing of a clown holding balloons. His drawing became the cover of a national Scholastics magazine, and that was where his love of drawing and painting began. His father used to sit him down and teach him how to draw ducks, birds, frogs, etc. This helped him to become aware of how nature inspires and applies to art. As a teenager, he loved wild cartoonish drawings of race cars, like in Hot Rod. But he also found an interest in the Great Fantasy Masters of Old. He decided that he wanted to start drawing cars, but with fantastical creatures driving them.

His work today is very much a mixture of both. You can find detailed paintings of fantasy art, vintage car art paintings, and a lot more colorful illustrations. His work has been posters, book covers, children’s book illustrations, greeting cards, and puzzles, and will soon be able to hang in your own home! With Art & Canvas, you will have the ability to print his art on demand, and hang it anywhere you would like!

Real Wood Frames

Real Wood vs MDF Wood Frames

What’s the difference between real wood frames and MDF wood frames?

In the world of moulding you will find different types of materials used to create individual styles. It might seem as simple as wood vs plastic, but the real story is much deeper. We’ll start at the beginning of the manufacturing process to see how frames start as trees in a forest, but become our beautiful mouldings.

Real Wood

Real Wood

Let’s start by talking about real wood. Personally, my favorite part about real wood is the visible grains on the frames. It gives the frame a unique and personal feel. The texture can really show off the craftsmanship that goes into making these frames.

So real wood – what is it made out of? Most of our frames that feature real wood come from 2 types of trees: Ash and Pine. Pine is the most common. It’s also featured in one of my favorite series, In Depth. However, Ash is my favorite wood since it’s also used to make baseball bats for the major leagues.

There are big pluses to purchasing a natural and real wood frame. The wood will look amazing and give a rustic and modern look to any room and it is sturdier than an MDF frame!

Real Wood Frames

MDF Wood

MDF is an abbreviation for Medium Density Fiberboard. It is the byproduct of wood chips and sawdust which is then pressurized and held together. Because of this every single piece of MDF looks exactly the same. During the manufacturing process, we add a moulding wrap to the frame. Since every piece of MDF looks the same, it insures that it will always look exactly the same no matter how frames you purchase.

MDF Wood Frames

No matter what you cannot go wrong with choosing one over the other because they both have the biggest plus! They will make an amazing frame!

The First Day Of Spring Is Here!

spring 2017

Monday, March 20, 2017 marks the 2017 spring equinox. The equinox occurs every year on the 19th or 20th of March and this days marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and happens at the same moment across the entire world.

The word equinox is derived from two Latin words and means equal night. This is important because on the equinox, day and night are equal duration on the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. During this time the Northern Hemisphere tilts towards that sun and that’s what’s causes longer days and warmer weather as more light hits the hemisphere.

To celebrate the first day of spring Frame USA is offering 10% off all Colori Picture Frames all month long. Use Coupon Code: Colori10 & enjoy these wonderful savings.
