Orion, the big print.

Recommended Posts

Tom took charge of getting me a large print done by his regular photoprinter in Ireland and it shipped over, but then got delayed for long enough for us to have gone on holiday by the time it arrived. However, our friend Ray noticed it on the van driver's list while receiving something himself and told the driver he'd take it. He then lent us his minibus so that while Tom was here on holiday we could collect it from the framers. The good people at the Crayon Gris art shop in Sisteron handled the framing. They, too, are friends because Monique exhibits with them. (The multiple virtues of small communities!) It's framed in aluminium extrusion and behind museum quality plexiglass. The framers pointed out the danger of glass at this size, it's extreme weight and prodigious expense. In fact it's very transparent on far less reflective than it appears in the photo. We run a guest house so we don't want anything dangerous, either.

So this is only a tiny fraction of what would be possible in terms of size from our 33 panel mosaic but we didn't have a wall that could take anything bigger!

All good fun.

Olly - and thanks to Tom and Ray along with Francis and Cécile of the Crayon Gris.

Looks good Olly!!! ..... I bet it's breathtaking in the flesh so to speak :)

I assume that's a dwarf standing by the side and it's really only 3ft high? :D :d

Wow, I bet that's quite the view! Very nice! I wonder what it would look like printed on transparent film, mounted in one of those backlit type of boxes. [emoji4]

Now that's guaranteed to increase the transit time between rooms. :)

My own astro-images also come out pretty well when printed on glossy paper but I usually stick to 6"x4"...

Nice piece of 'artwork' there, probably very expensive to produce.

I think I'll have to stick to my laminated A3 inkjet printouts for now!

That looks great. It would look great on a ceiling. Now could you step over to the left so I can have a peek at m45?
