Dear Friend:

Two weeks ago, yes drop dead with surprise as we did, we got five feet of snow! You may have seen us on the news in Frazier Park. Now all of that exquisite white is almost gone, and spring is definitely in the air! Our daffodils are abundant and wildly in bloom!

Mother's Day

We are looking ahead with some excitement for Mother’s Day, which is coming early this year on Sunday, 8th May.

Our best suggestion for a Mother's Day Gift is one of the three sizes of Photo-to-Artwork. Franco, an artist who works with us, can also do a pastel sketch from a photo. As you can see in the picture below, he is quite amazing, for he captures the essence of the child.

Until Mother’s Day we offer a discount of 10% on all Photo-to-Artwork orders.

We have also added the smaller size of 8”x10” for only $35.00.

Send us your photos or bring them in to a show. You may also pick up the phone to call 661-242-1010 to discuss other ideas for some unique gifts.

We can also resurrect old artwork from a bygone day.

Here is an example from one of our customers, who had a very old sepia photo of her deceased grandparents. The photo had suffered the ravages of time - it was dog-eared, creased, had water damage and had also been attacked by insects and bacteria. Notice that after the restauration all the spots, creases, and moisture marks are gone. We are rather proud of this and the customer was delighted.

Custom Framing

We would like to remind you that we also frame certificates, and special posters and the typical Employee and Volunteer Photos-of-the-Month you may want to display on the wall at work. Our prices are affordable, our quality is exceptional. We come to you for the order and we also deliver.

If you choose the new technique Art-Tex your pictures at work will be unique. We guarantee these Art-Tex pictures for four years.

"The personal attention to detail and delivery of artwork was unexpected, but greatly appreciated! Their new 'Art-Tex' technique which applies texture to a lithograph painting, and turns it into a 'virtual oil painting' is absolutely fantastic!

"Their frame assortment is also nothing short of “Top Draw“! Most of their selections are of high quality wood in a variety of grades. And with all of this service and quality, they still manage to keep the pricing very affordable." -
Pablo Benevides talking about our Custom Work.

The Art of Sung Kim

Terrace Arch II

Born in 1940 in Seoul, South Korea, Sung was a child prodigy. He went on to study fine art at school, graduating with honors from the Seorabel Art College in Seoul.

He opened his own successful studio while still in Korea, and worked as an illustrator for magazines and children’s books.

This opened the door to travel and he roamed Europe before immigrating to the USA in 1980.

He is now well-known for his beautiful Mediterranean images.
