A giclee is a print of an original painting that is made from a high resolution digital "picture" of the painting. Giclee is a French word meaning "spray of ink." The actual process of making a giclee uses an inkjet printer similar to the printers that are so prevalent in desktop computer configurations. But a giclee is made using a much llarger printer which uses an ink set that is formulated for long life and fade resistance. The Olendorf giclees below are printed on canvas and mounted on hardwood boards. The reproduction is so precise and the colors so intense that it is almost impossible to tell the difference between the original painting and the giclee. The knowing observer will point out that Bill Olendorf only painted on hardwood boards, not on canvas, so all Olendorf pictures on canvas are giclees, not original paintings. These giclees are very beautiful and are offered here for the budget-minded collector.
