This is a Signed and Numbered Limited Edition canvas giclee print of Burtenshaws's painting entitled "Ho'okipa Serenity." Bruce painted the image with written permission from Maui based world-famous professional photographer Ron Dahlquist, who captured these windsurfers patiently awaiting big waves at world-renowned Ho'okipa Beach near Paia, Maui.
"I can't believe these are paintings! They look like photographs!" This is an exact statement made by countless art lovers and many premier artists in Hawaii upon seeing Burtenshaw's paintings and prints. Every element of this painting screams realism, from the reflections and colors of the ocean, to the silhouetted windsurfers and shadows cast onto the sails!
Our canvas giclee prints can be purchased as "Print Only" (un-stretched), "Standard Wrapped" on 3/4" depth stretcher bars, or "Gallary Wrapped" on 1-1/2" deep depth stretcher bars. Stretched prints can also be purchased with the picture frames shown. If needed, please see the images and information at the bottom of this page for additional descriptions of these terms.
Gallery wrapped refers to the technique of stretching a canvas print so that the image wraps around the outer side edges of the stretcher bar frame. As such, the image appears on the sides of the stretcher bar frame as well as the front. The canvas is then secured to the back of the wooden frame with staples.
Standard wrapped canvas prints are designed to be hung with frames. As such, the image remains on the front surface of the stretcher bar frame, and the image does not appear on the sides of the stretcher bar frame.
Gallery wrapped canvas prints are designed to be hung with or without frames. Traditional deep depth frames and deep depth "floater frames" for these prints are available, and many can be purchased under the "Standard Wrapped or Gallery Wrapped / Frames" option box at the upper right side of this page.
Floater frames provide a deep space, channel, or "moat" around the artwork--between the side edges of the stretched canvas print and the floater frame--and can make it seem like the artwork is floating. This compliments the artwork by adding a stylish three-dimensional look and feel. View images and in-depth information on floater frames by clicking on our "ABOUT FRAMES" main menu button.
