HI Tiki-Riviera,

OMG...you have the Frank Sinatra, "Broken Bottle" painting!!! It has Frank "the chairman of the board" Sinatra, it has tikis, it has a broken bottle. Everything in life we need to live. I really like the thick black bamboo frame with the minimal blue "matting" or what ever that thing is called.

Secondly, I really like the commissioned piece your sister has. Man, she can pass that on to her kids and that will be an awesome heirloom.

Seriously, thank you for sharing

HI Grog,

I love that painting of Derek Yaniger. I was fortunate enough to pick one up too and I did the same as you and left it be. I have to be honest tough, after seeing how "Humming Bird Surprise" and "Mask of Mohu" turned out, I've been entertaining the idea of framing Derek's painting. What do you think?

HI Wildsville Man,

What an impressive collection. I love your "Brown Mug" Shag serigraph. The brown frame looks simply elegant. Most people choose a black frame, but your brown frame and matting on the "Three Suns" is very catchy.

I'm glad to hear that you're planing on eventually framing your Shag original, "Drum Signals". It felt like blasphemy when I took "Humming Bird Surprise" and "Mask of Mohu" to the framers, because I know Shag was trying to make a statement with his choice of framing --or lack of framing. But I just love how they turned out. You have to show us the painting once it is framed.

It seems no one likes to frame their Derek paintings. I love all 3 of them, especially, "Wildsville Man." Just curious, you mentioned that your Shag is in the bedroom, where do you keep your Derek?

Wildville Man,

That is an impressive collection. I love both your Sam Gambinos, but 2 things that stand out to me is the Miles Thompson and the Tim Biskup.

Thanks for sharing.

After listening to the discussion on this post, I do see the beauty of a simple white matting and black frame, so that's what I chose for my recent Shag print, "Blue Seascape".





Did anyone else frame anything lately? I would love to see it.

ok, i just don't get it. i like shag's style too, but why would anybody buy a print for $200-400? it's a print! it's just a poster! they should cost about $20 each! i think tcers should be buying original art from our many talented tc artists. you can get an amazing original piece by ken ruzik for less than a poster by shag.

While not a painting , a serigraph is most decidedly not a poster either .

A serigraph is a silk screened image. With a serigraph the original oil painting is scanned and separated digitally into each color found in the original. A separate silk screen is created for each and every color that was scanned. Each silk screen is precisely placed over the serigraph paper, and then by hand squeegee, paint for a specific color is applied. This single application of one paint color must then dry for at least 24 to 48 hours before the next color paint can be applied. It can take a serigrapher up to 3 months to produce 1 run of as many as 250 serigraphs of the same image.
Serigraphs are produced in small numbers and they are costly to produce . No comparison to a poster .

Hi Kingstiedye,

I guess to answer your question the cost of anything is what the market is willing to bear. There's a lot of people out there that consider shag as a "must have".

I recently saw the Shag documentary, "Sophisticated Misfits" and in the bonus portion of the DVD, it shows the anatomy of a Shag serigraph. Jeff Wasserman painstakingly silk screening each of the prints, and there's a lot of possible errors that occur in the way --especially if there's 10 colors involved. You can see Jeff wearing a back brace while doing the whole process, because it is very labor intensive.

Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate up and coming TC artists out there too, but if they become popular their art / serigraphs will also be in the $300 - $400 range.
