TCHAIKOVSKY CD COVER

TCHAIKOVSKY CD COVER

CD Cover by Cheryl Dolby

When I used my Renaissance Oil method to create a collage of Tchaikovsky last year for my son, Cameron, I had no idea that it would end up on the cover of the new CD by pianist, Anthony Goldstone of London. I was excited when Anthony e-mailed me asking for permission to use it in his upcoming CD. I think this goes to show you never know when some exciting thing might happen when you create a post.

I decided to create a Giclee of 50 Tchaikovsky prints. Number one is now available. For those of you who are not familiar with Giclee’s here is the definition that Wikipedia gives.

Giclée ( /ʒiːˈkleɪ/ zhee-KLAY or /dʒiːˈkleɪ/), is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne[1] for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on IRIS printers in a process invented in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any high quality inkjet print and is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to denote such prints.

Giclee is 18"w x 24" h x 3/4 d and is priced at $175.00

I added oil paint to the surface to create texture

If you are interested in purchasing my number one Giclee of Tchaikovsky, we can work through papal so just email me and we’ll go from there.

  3. Congratulations on this lovely accomplishment. I know how much my friend Joseph had to pay for the cover of his latest CD (a tribute in flute and steel drum to anything from Medieval to Baroque classical music), so I can only imagine you must be walking on air about now. And just in time for your summer workshop, too. Way to go!!
