“My sister Minka had a hard time.  My grandma says that from the time we were little, I was sturdier and hardier.  My sister had some really abusive relationships.  She was a beautiful, beautiful, wonderful person.  She was naturally always smiling, and she had a beautiful voice.  I could never carry a tune or sing, but she could.”

“Because she was older, I think maybe she was exposed to a little bit more or something and she was more sensitive to things. I always felt like I had to walk around eggshells around my sister because she was so sensitive, and so life was harder for my sister and she passed away and died of AIDS.” — Alpin


Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.


What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
