Subdivisions is one of Greg's favorite images. Taken during astronomical twilight over the eastern Bora Bora reef, when the sky was still an inky midnight blue, it started as an eighty-second image. The eastern reef extends hundreds of yards out from shore, so the Pacific's surf breaks generally at a distance, unless there is an exceptional storm or tide surge. On this early morning, whenever the wind separated the clouds enough, you could just make out the white of the crashing surf in the distance beneath the stars. The 80-second exposure has several interesting effects: first, it smooths out the surf line, turning it into a dramatically sharp divider between the sky and the turquoise Bora Bora water. Second, it softens the clouds and then captures their wind-driven swirls. Third, it smooths the reef water's surface but, thanks to the absence of glare light, without losing its transparency on the rocks in the foreground. And finally, the longer exposure blurs the stars from their ordinary pinpoint appearance into something more beckoning.

A note about the media: As with all our artwork, we offer this piece in the medium or media we feel is best suited for its emotional connection. We generally find that most colors and details are most vividly conveyed through our Radiant finish. It's more brilliant and detailed than either acrylic or metal. We also offer this piece in Claritas, our acrylic block available in one or more of three sizes, depending on the art itself. It is ideally suited for the desktop, kitchen window, bathroom counter, or mantle.

Some of our larger pieces are also offered in polyptychs of different configurations on Fabrika, a museum quality cloth onto which color-matched inks are directly printed and bonded with a lustre finish for archival protection. 

Whether a limited edition, or open edition radiant print or a Claritas gift, none of our artwork is an off-the-shelf Amazon Prime® delivery item. From order to shipment is usually a 10-day process, each step of which you will be kept apprised.

Shipping is free within the continental United States on all art. First time print collectors also receive free global shipping. 

Otherwise, global shipping [outside the Continental US] is priced on a per piece basis.
