|PSALM 67- Giclee Printing
In February, 2014, the John August Swanson Studio borrowed Mr. Swanson's 1989 painting, The Gardeners from the collection of Harold and Bonnie Shimmin. The original painting was scanned at 512 dots per inch, at ArtScans Studio in Los Angeles. This file was digitally lightened and enhanced under the direction of John August Swanson, and a single giclee was printed on January 21, 2015.
Over the course of the next six months, John August Swanson created a new, brighter, and more elaborate painting from the work.
On July 31, 2015, the newly completed painting was sent to ArtScans Studio to be scanned at 512 dots per inch,. The digital file was then delivered to the Swanson Studio on August 5, 2015.
On August 7, 2015, the enhanced digital file was sent to Kolibri Art Studio in Torrance, CA, and a proof was printed. Under the supervision of John August Swanson, additional color changes and details, both scanned hand drawn and digital, were added to the digital file.
The final and completed giclee image file was sent to Kolibri Art Studio on September 9, 2015 for printing.
On October 2, 2015, the first twenty giclee prints were delivered and approved by John August Swanson.
