of sunflower and diptych images.

It's a diptych which required
so many hours
I wouldn't know where to begin.

printing options

Your photos can be professionally printed on clear or white aluminum. The gorgeous white aluminum is especially impressive.

Email Darius for inquiries and prices, based upon your precise image size.

Your same photos can also be printed upon premium solid wood. Printing your image upon a highly-glossy, polished wood panel gives it a panache not often seen.

There's virtually no limit to many creative transformations for your photo. We can put it on a stainless steel coffee mug.

We can expertly transfer it to your iPhone or Samsung cell-phone case. It can be flawlessly featured upon your mouse pad, with multiple designs to chose from; to a heavy duty tote bag; a 252-piece jigsaw puzzle; even to an extra-sturdy glass cutting-board for your kitchen. You want porcelain coasters or an aluminum water bottle with your photograph? DONE!

Our same state-of-the-art lab also prints flawlessly on hip, ultra-cool, acid-free vinyl ... And it's archival vinyl: Satiny-smooth and shiny.

Like other refreshing custom-print options, vinyl is never covered with glass. It's ready to be hung and practically begs to be touched. See Custom Photography for additional options.

Let's now return to the sunflowers!

It's a funny thing: As a young man growing up by the ocean, I never really liked seagulls. Yet as an adult, two of my best-selling diptychs feature these ubiquitous birds...

Here's the original photo from which
At the Beach originates...

I stumbled upon this sculpture while exploring a foundry ... and finding it powerful, immediately photographed it.

Which then gave rise to some astonishing assemblages:

I'm grateful to my custom photo laboratory which handles my work with unfailing professionalism. They utilize only the highest grade FUJI color dyes, guaranteed not to fade for 100 years, provided your prints are protected from sunlight. While you might order some art photography from my seven galleries, I encourage you to also send me your own.

Send any of your favorite personal images. I can bring them up-to-speed utilizing PhotoShop. Visit Custom Photography for more details.

I can hand-color specific pieces so that yours are unlike anyone else's in the world. And I take enormous pride in taking excellent care of you. I will restore and update damaged photos so that they look as new. Even a treasured, out-of-focus print can miraculously be sharpened (try me!).

You and I can personally design a piece together.

We can create custom-order, high-end art images, tailored to be signature pieces for your home or office.




It's possible I prefer moonlight and shadow.

There's one more variation whose raw power
astonishes even me — and I created it:

My specialty photo lab expertly prints as large as 40" X 60". That includes all the photos in this gallery. I admit that the sunflowers themselves are particularly joyful.

Even so, I offer a black & white gallery for those of you who prefer artwork to be less exuberant. Plan a visit to the other ART galleries for your ongoing pleasure. Here's the road map:
