Coast Guard painting photo shoot at CPL imaging

CPL Imaging in Duluth has been a tremendous partner in assisting with photographing each 8 X 10 foot painting to make each into a giclée print. The images here are some shots from the photo shoot at CPL on January 19th. The giclee prints are smaller versions of the paintings, are numbered and available for purchase.
