General Information about my Limited Edition Canvas Prints

  • Each image offered as a Limited Edition Canvas Print is limited to an edition of only 95 prints. They are printed with archival inks on canvas, stretched, hand-varnished, framed, and then inspected, signed and numbered by Matt Beard. 
  • Each print is framed with an aged Rustic Redwood Lath edge. Solid wood strips are attached directly to the sides of the canvas, providing protection and a casual rustic look, with a minimalist approach. The color and texture are reminiscent of old railroad ties and a fine compliment for these visions of classic California.
  • Certificate of Authenticity included. 
  • Allow approx. 3 weeks for delivery.


Artwork Notes:

Some islands are formed by water, some are formed by the long standing legacies of private property dating back generations to a time before “coastal access” was even a thing. Some of these have effectively become islands in their own way shielding their environs from the outside world and preserving these lands in a state of blissfully arrested development.

I haven’t spent much time on this particular stretch of coast, but the short windows I’ve been blessed with have been spectacular immersions into one of the most well-preserved portions of an older California still remaining on the mainland.

Some folks even call this place their home. This is the view they see coming home every time they leave and return.

I sometimes half-jokingly call the entire California Coast my home- and if the whole coast were a magnificent house on a hill, this would surely be the entryway to it’s Great Room, it’s focal point, where all of the architectural nuances used to great affect elsewhere culminate to a sublimely perfect crescendo of the Architect’s true genius. This is only the entry mind you, you’d have to explore around the corner to see the rest.

It’s not likely that I’ll ever live here in the normal sense, but still, when I consider this scene, I feel I am Almost Home.
