Greg Olsen

Canvas

Canvas prints are reproduced on actual artist's canvas using Giclee (pronounced zshee-clay) digital printing technology which uses incredibly fine jets of ink to literally "spray" the image onto the canvas. Each canvas image receives a protective UV varnish and is suitable for displaying without glass.

  • Canvas prints are available framed, mounted or rolled.
  • Framed canvas prints come ready to hang.
  • Mounted canvas prints are a durable alternative to traditional, stretched canvas print. This method reduces the susceptibility to punctures, dimples, and sagging, while eliminating the need for stretcher bars. Mounted canvas prints do not come ready to hang.
  • Rolled canvas prints come with a 2" white border to accommodate stretching.

Paper

Usually a traditional offset lithographic print on high quality paper. Certain images may be offered as Giclee prints on special archival fine art paper.

  • Paper prints are available un-matted or matted.
  • Paper prints are meant to be placed in a frame and do not come ready to hang.
  • It is recommended that paper prints be matted and framed under glass for their protection.
  • All Paper Prints come with a 1" to 2" white border to accommodate matting and framing.

Textured Paper

Greg Olsen

Textured Paper

A lithograph or Giclee print on paper, coated with high tech, non-glare, UV-resistant film and mounted to a rigid substrate. This finish eliminates the need to cover the image with glass when framed and adds texture. It looks very similar to a canvas print but is less expensive. The surface is very durable and can be wiped clean with a cloth.

  • Paper Textured prints are available framed or unframed.
  • Framed Textured Paper prints come ready to hang.
  • Unframed Textured Paper prints are meant to be placed in a frame and do not come ready to hang.
  • Unframed Textured Paper prints are trimmed to the image and do not include a white border.

A Light To The Gentiles

A LIGHT TO THE GENTILES 

The experience of creating this painting forever changed the way I think about Jesus and the other characters found in scripture. It brought an endearment and connection with those individuals that I had not experienced before. It came about during the modeling session for this piece depicting Joseph, Mary, Simeon and the baby Jesus amongst other visitors to the ancient temple. On this occasion early in my career I used friends and neighbors as models. Joseph was a neighbor, Mary turned out to be played by my sister and Simeon was the only man on our block with a white beard. For the Christ child I recruited a little 39 day old baby down the street. (The baby Jesus was 40 days old on this occasion.) Modeling is not an easy job and soon this poor little baby had had enough and was crying vigorously for his real mother a few yards away. We improvised and used a doll as a temporary “stand in” while the distraught little one was handed off to the familiar arms of his own mother. I watched as she held him close, rocked him gently and whispered into his ear calming his little cries for rescue. Having observed this scene, which is certainly familiar to most of us, I had a curious thought cross my mind. It was a simple question, “I wonder if the baby Jesus ever acted like this?” It sounds rather trite and silly but I had never before imagined the baby Jesus crying. I grew up with the familiar images of a halo covered head smiling in the manger, looking heavenward in a sort of detached bliss. My wife and I have had 6 children of our own and none of them ever acted like that! The idea that the Christ child may have come into this world exhibiting some of the same “humanness” as children I had known was an extremely endearing idea for me. This thought in no way diminished his divine nature for me but it did make him more real to me. I found that a subtle yet profound shift took place in my connection with all of the Biblical characters as I was able to relate to them as real, living, breathing (and sometimes crying) people. People who perhaps had more in common with me and my family and friends than the romanticized versions I had previously imagined.
