The Green Sea Turtle is named not for the color of its shell, but for the color of its body fat which is green due to the turtles' vegetarian diet. Once a popular food item, green turtles are now protected by law. The setting for this scene is Waimānalo Bay on the island of Oʻahu. In the background are the hills of Lanikai and the peninsula of Mokapu which from a distance resembles a swimming turtle. The island of Moku Manu and the Mokulua Islands are shown on the right.
The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual printed picture. Matted prints are measured by outside mat dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard-sized frames.
*Note that the actual picture size will be smaller than the mat size and may vary in shape depending on the shape of the original painting.
Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14”, or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than that of a matted print.
Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas, then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.
GALLERY WRAP GICLÉE
You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which adds an extra 1-5/8" all around, with an image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée and can be stretched at a frame shop near you, as a contemporary option to framing.
