Serenade art prints

Serenade painting by El Vaquero Muerto

 

Under the desert moon he sings to her of the past, of the world, of his heart. High above, perched upon a cloud, she hears his song and a path is strung between them.

I make giclee prints on canvas of all my paintings, illustrations, photography collaborations and leather paintings. My personal artist philosophy is to share my images with as many people as possible to enrich their lives and give them to ability to personalize their spaces with artistic works that they enjoy, without having to pay the high prices that original works demand. These giclee prints are done on canvas and stretched over wooden bars, except the 4×6 which are stretched over solid blocks of wood. These prints are ready to hang and can be printed in varying sizes with different prices. This makes them fantastic additions to homes, offices and as unique and artistic gifts.
