James Eads Boreas & Helios Hand Painted Print Release Details

James Eads has new print coming this week titled "Boreas & Helios" it is a rare limited edition hand painted print on a 9" x 12" cradled wood panel and is created in a one time limited edition of 10*. "Boreas and Helios" will be available Friday, February 28th at 12 Noon PST at and costs $225.

Behind the process: "Boreas & Helios" is first printed as a work in progress high quality giclee print and then mounted onto a 9” x 12” 1.5” deep cradled wood panel. Each print is then hand painted for several hours and embellished with finishing touches. The panel itself is then painted black on the front and back and sealed with a protective finish. The poem “Boreas & Helios” is adhered to the back of the panel.

*Please note the image is an approximation of the final piece, each hand painted print is one of a kind and expected to vary slightly.

When Boreas blows cruel and hard,
He shivers through the leafless yard;
When Helios rises at yellowed dawn,
he wakes with a colossal yawn.

Boreas & Helios avoiding an age of reason.
causing the light to never go out of season.

- inspired by Robert Burns' “A Winter Night”
