Choose your print option:

• Giclée Print:

Fine art paper giclée printed on archival acid free paper. All giclée prints come with up to a 2″ white border all around (depending on size) and are suitable for matting and framing. Semi-gloss paper is the default. Let me know if you prefer a matte finish for your giclée print order.

• Canvas Print:

Stretched canvas with a satin semi-gloss surface finish. This exhibition-quality canvas has an acid free, lignin free heavyweight cotton-poly blend. Your canvas prints will come ready to hang, with a hanging wire on the back. Note: The edges of your canvas will be white. Let me know if you prefer for the edges to be printed a specific color, or the image wrapped around the edges, for an additional charge.

• Metal Print:

Quality art print on a sheet of aluminum. The metal printing process gives more depth, sharper contrast, and deeper color saturation than traditional photo printing. Hanging hardware included on the back.

Contact me for framing at an additional charge.

Framing is not included. If you would like your prints to come framed, contact me to discuss framing options and get a price quote. I’m also happy to advise on frame selection for your prints. Most of my prints come in standard sizes that will fit into affordable off-the-shelf frames and mats. Please reach out with any questions!

A lesser-known fact about sunflowers is that they are symbols of nuclear disarmament.

When the Soviet Union broke apart in 1991, the new nation of Ukraine held the third-largest arsenal of nuclear weapons. In 1996, Ukraine committed to total nuclear disarmament. To honor the occasion, representatives from the U.S., Ukraine, and Russia planted sunflowers in the locations where there had previously been nuclear missile silos.

But why did they plant sunflowers? Not only are the bright yellow flowers symbols of optimism, they also possess a special capability: they absorb radioactive isotopes from the environment. In fact, sunflowers have been planted at both the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear disaster sites because they help to remove radioactive toxins from the environment.

As long as help is still needed, 100% of the profit made from sales of this print will be donated to Refugees International to aid their efforts to help Ukrainian families. Refugees International has 4 stars on Charity Navigator.
