A Personal Statement from Dan Carmichael:
I am often asked what motivates me to do what I do. The answer is easy – I love doing it. The motivation is simple: I love the beauty of the world around us. I love creating art from it.
Beauty surrounds those who choose to see it. But an even more unique beauty can be found when one is willing to work hard to find it. And that is what I like to do. I am not like other artists who prefer to stay on the safety of the beaten path, creating the same art so many others already have. I like to get off the beaten path, to find the places others rarely visit, to capture the scene that hopefully no other person has.
I have been blown off the top of sand dunes while taking pictures in a hurricane. I have been stranded in mountain wilderness areas with temperatures below zero in a desperation so severe I thought I was going to die. I have been threatened with my life.
The challenge to create memories of things others have not is what makes my art unique and original. On The Fine Art Place you will find unique art you cannot find anywhere else.
It is my hope you will find the unique and original art thought provoking and uplifting.
Superior, Unique, Original
Why is the art superior? Using only high-end professional cameras, professional materials, and professional printers ensures the quality is the highest you can buy.
The art is neither common nor ordinary. It is not already hanging on dozens of walls. It is something special to decorate with or to give as a gift. It is unique and original. It is timeless.
Why offer both fine art photography and paintings?
Simple. People prefer both. Some prefer photography prints, some prefer paintings. That’s why almost everything here has at least two different versions – traditional photography for those who want it, and paintings for those who want that.
About the Fine Art Photography
The photographs are unique. Ever seen a picture of Yosemite Falls for sale on the internet? A tulip? Of course you have. There’s millions of them. The art here is original… unique. Photography prints you will find no where else.
About the Hand-Crafted Paintings
It all begins with Dan’s fine art photography. From his original photograph Dan will create a hand-crafted painting – a painted photo. Software tools are NOT used to automatically create paintings like others do. Each painting is hand-crafted – hand -brushed. Thousands of brush strokes are applied which is why each painting may take hours or even days to complete. The result is an original painting.
Because each painting is individually hand-crafted, they are as original and unique as a painting from a blank canvas and can never be exactly duplicated again. Not even by Dan.
IN SUMMARY – THE BOTTOM LINE
The art is original and unique, superior in every way. The Prints are professionally-prepared and shipped. Mediums available are: unframed prints, matted and framed prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints, and metal prints all available in different sizes.
