John's travels have inspired him to paint the many architectural gems and scenic landscapes he has encountered.

A giclée print is an elevation in printmaking technology on archival paper.  The original oil on canvas artwork is first scanned by the Athenæum of Philadelphia on a sophisticated high-resolution digital scanner with a raking light to capture surface details.  The giclée is then printed using a professional eleven-color ink jet printer with archival-quality inks onto acid-free Innova soft textured fine art paper.  This printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.  The archival paper giclée is then placed in a 100% cotton museum-quality mat.  An historical and architectural description (written by John) is affixed to the back and the giclée is enclosed in a protective acid-free clear bag.
