Valley Of The Shadow


“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me” … This one is personal, painted at The Gathering, at Colours of Hope, it began with simply getting lost in worship and offering up the coloured pastes on my fingers to the Lord in random abandon. The worship was sweet and intense and I felt His presence and His pleasure upon me, then I started to see a valley-like shape and heard the whisper “…the valley of the shadow of death…” And my heart began to weep for Graeme Westwood and Lachlan Burleigh and my mind could not fathom these random acts of life and death and I began to see a “washing” through the centre of the painting so I pulled white paint down into it until I felt His presence was “in the valley”. I painted this through tears and I see tears in the painting, and I see the ‘random’, and forfeiting understand, and I also see a healing rest and a peace in “for thou art with me”.



Technically-speaking, our prints are not prints at all, not in the common use of the term, but are fine art reproductions of original works. The quality is so high that it is difficult to tell between the reproduction and the original. Giclee Reproductions are premium high resolution digital images produced on museum quality, Canson 300-320gsm Cotton Rag (fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) printed with archival Canon Lucia EX 12-colour pigment high performance inks. Canon Lucia EX pigment inks achieve an “under glass” permanence of 95 years for colour images.

Giclee can be confusing, as many may incorrectly assume that all digital printing is equal. Essentially Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is an invented name from the French word ‘le gicleur’ meaning ‘to squirt’. Originally coined in 1991 to distinguish between common digital prints and the highest quality form of art reproductions using wide format inkjet printing technology. In 30 years, this technology has advanced enormously, giving an even wider distinction between Giclee reproductions and digital prints. However, we still use the word ‘print’ so that we are easily understood.

Fine Art Giclee Reproductions should be framed behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your reproduction and read our blog article “Caring for your Fine Art” for information on ensuring your artwork still looks amazing for 3 – 4 generations.
