"Cal & Abra" // Watercolor & Ink // 2014 // Archival Giclée Print


"I think I love you, Cal."

"I'm not good."

"Because you're not good." 

-John Steinbeck, East of Eden

One of my favorite exchanges from one of those books that I read about once a year, and am still moved by it every time. This watercolor illustration is just a tiny slice of one of Steinbeck's beautiful, spare scenes that make up what he considered his magnum opus. 

All of my watercolor prints are created with love and care on my Canon Pixma Pro 100 printer. They are museum-quality, printed on 240gsm Aquarelle Rag, which is gorgeous, 100% cotton and acid-free, which means they will last for a very, very long time. 

Sizes available:

8.5" x 11"

5" x  7"

Prints will arrive unframed, covered with a protective plastic sleeve in a sturdy recycled flat mailer with a piece of scrap chip board for extra support. 

I take a lot of pride in the  quality of my prints, and strive to photograph them as accurately as possible, but please be aware that every monitor is different, and it's possible that the colors in your print will differ slightly than how it appears on your computer screen. 

Original painting available for purchase here.
