Majestic Swell - Giclee Print

    This is a Signed and Numbered Limited Edition canvas giclee print of Burtenshaw's painting entitled "Majestic Swell." Bruce painted the image with written permission from Maui based world-renowned professional photographer Ron Dahlquist, who captured this moment in history on the North Shore of Maui at well-known Jaws Pipeline in Pe'ahi.


    The surfer of these majestic upchurning turquoise waters is world-acclaimed big wave explorer Garrett McNamara, 8-time Guinness World Record holder for the largest wave ever surfed, known for "breaking the world record for the largest wave ever surfed at Nazaré, Portugal, surviving a monstrous wave at Jaws, and riding a tsunami from calving glaciers in Alaska." 



    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.

Note on Ordering Procedures:


    If any questions arise concerning the boxes above labeled "Size" and "Standard Wrapped or Gallery Wrapped" for prints  or "Framing Options" for originals, please see the images and descriptions  below.


    One option from each of the two boxes above must be selected in order to view a  correct image and a correct price.


    If considering ordering a frame, please see our "ABOUT FRAMES" page.


    Before we address the three steps, a bit of information may be helpful for many of our customers. For starters, this page is the painting's "product page." Every painting has its own product page. As stated above, the price and image shown at the top of each product page will change to reflect a correct price and image only after choosing both a size and a framing option. This price will also change each time a new size or framing option is selected.

    Secondly, it should be understood what a "stretcher bar frame" is. As its name implies, a stretcher bar frame is a frame made of four wooden "stretcher bars." Canvas prints are then "stretched" onto these frames. Stretcher bars come in many lengths (which determines the over-all size of the frame), but there are only a few standard depths for their outer side edges (not the width of their front faces); the most common being 3/4" standard depth and 1-1/2" deep depth stretcher bars.

Example of a

Stretcher Bar Frame:

stapled onto these wooden frames)

    Next, the difference between the two depths of artwork that we offer must be understood. As stated, depth refers to how deep the artwork is; in other words, how far the artwork will extend outward from the wall when hung. We offer both 3/4" standard depth and 1-1/2" deep depth artwork.
