This is a Signed and Numbered Limited Edition canvas giclee print of Burtenshaw's painting entitled "Fairy Princess." Credits for the reference photo go to Bruce's daughter, professional photographer and therapist Natalie Burtenshaw.
Burtenshaw painted the background slightly out of focus in order to bring this adorable little princess girl to the forefront of the painting. Her surprised gaze, colorful face paintings, pretend mystical wand, and the enchantment of her winged costume add to the magical feeling brought out by the painting. The transparent and shaded areas of her dress and the amount of detail in the background reveal Burtenshaw's extreme devotion to realism.
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.
