Sun Rise in Artesia

Outskirts of Artesia, New Mexico

This photo was taken back in October 2010 whilst on my way to Colorado for some winter fun. Artesia is located in southeastern New Mexico, nestled between the two larger cities of Roswell to the north and Carlsbad to the south. The Texas border is less than 100 miles away to the east and the beautiful mountains, including the towns of Cloudcroft and Ruidoso are to the west. Artesia is a perfect center-point for southeastern New Mexico. Artesia History & Culture: "Artesia" is our town's third name. The first name was "Miller", which came from a railroad employee. For a brief time we were known as "Stegman" after the first postmistress, none other than Sallie Chisum Robert Stegman. Sallie dropped the "Stegman" from her name soon after her divorce, and with the discovery of artesian wells in the area the fledgling town was renamed "Artesia" in 1903 and officially incorporated in 1905. In 1924 the Illinois #3 oil well came in, opening up the Artesia oil fields locally and the Permian Basin regionally. Today, the oil & gas industry continues to flourish in the Artesia area along with farming, ranching, dairies, small businesses and the Federal Law.

Fine Art Print (Print Only)

Sun Rise in Artesia print

My print only orders are printed on Fine art archival ink print, sometimes referred to as "giclee" prints using museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl a natural white, 100% cotton paper-guarantees archival standards with a pearl-finish. The bright white of FineArt Pearl enables impressive contrasts and pictorial depth in black and white or color photography. The special coating provides the pearl-finish.

MegaPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

MegaPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

This is a modern method of mounting images, also known as “MegaPlaq” which brings an element of substance and dimension to plaque mounted art as it is finished with a one (1) inch deep beveled edge. The substantial nature of the mounted image can be seen from any angle when displayed. Art is mounted on a thick recycled, eco-friendly wood substrate, acid-free surface and finished with a black beveled edge.  The backside is hollowed out to reduce weight and conceal a convenient “French” cleat hanging system allowing the MegaPlaq to hang securely, flush against a wall.  The image is sealed with a special semi-matte UV laminate, which both protects the print and makes it moisture resistant.  The emi-matte UV finish reduces reflections while maintaining excellent image clarity and contrasts.

PlexiPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

PlexiPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

This outstanding display method (sometimes called “Diasec”) provides the glossy metallic paper images with unbeatably crystal-clear, three-dimensional feel as the picture is seen through the acrylic. The Artwork is mounted to the back of art-grade, UV protected, and scratch-resistant acrylic giving the artwork a look that is as durable as it is unique.  A 0.125 inch black, acid-free board is provided on the back of Standard PlexiPlaq to fully encase and protect face mounted artwork.  The edge is finished with a frosted beveled edge to accent the mounted artwork. To accentuate the dimensionality of artwork, a “French” cleat hanging system is applied to the backside of the PlexiPlaq for mounting.  The end result is an image the effectively “floats” half an inch off the wall.
