A Cake Walk - diptych canvas print

$ 1,800.00

A Cake Walk - Limited edition diptych giclée print on canvas of Eric Christensen's original watercolor diptych "A Cake Walk" featuring the wine of Cakebread Cellars: a 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon - Benchland Select from the Napa Valley, and a 2009 Chardonnay Reserve from the Carneros Napa Valley.

"Inspired by a recent trip to France where Versailles, Le Louvre, fine wine and food all compete for center stage, Eric Christensen has created a masterpiece that reflects his travel experiences. Too many delights to fit into a single painting, this new creation is a diptych of unequalled beauty. Imagine yourself strolling along the secluded pathway - from the beautiful Chateau in the distance past the hillside cloaked in lavender. As you amble toward the quiet country road, you notice the vineyards in their bright green summer garb. When you arrive at your destination, you discover a table laden with Summer’s abundance – fuzzy peaches, glistening nectarines, cherries ready to pick off the branch with a fresh baguette and bright orange pride of France - Mimolette cheese. The table presents some of the regional favorites of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay to sip as you watch the sun set below the distant mountains. It’s easy to see why this lovely journey is simply “A Cake Walk”!" - Eric Christensen Fine Art

It is a piece of cake or A Cake Walk when the only decision you need to make today is whether to pour the Cakebread Chardonnay or the Cabernet...and if you can't decide, then why not pour both?

*Curator recommendation - order the artwork unframed with the gallery wrapped mirrored edge and hang each piece about an inch apart.

* TRADITIONAL MOUNT:  Canvas print comes ready to stretch and frame.  It has an unfinished edge (sides of the canvas once stretched) so it is most desirable to have it framed.  If you select this option, a framing specialist will contact you to discuss framing options.  We are experienced framers of Christensen art and we would be happy to assist in the custom framing of your artwork.  We ship medium to large framed art in a wooden crate to protect the art and the frame.  Prefer to have the artwork shipped rolled ready to stretch and frame?  Use promo code 1870ROLLWITHIT for free shipping on your rolled artwork.

* GALLERY WRAP:  CUSTOMER PREFERRED on this piece.  Canvas print comes with a mirrored image around the sides of the canvas and is stretched and ready to hang with a picture wire attached to the 1.5" stretcher bars (depth from the wall).  Prefer to have the artwork shipped rolled ready to stretch?  Use promo code 1870ROLLWITHIT for free shipping on your rolled artwork.

* FRAMING: It is our experience that most customers purchase this piece with a gallery wrapped edge ready to hang unframed.  While this canvas giclée print is available with a gallery wrapped edge ready to hang unframed, adding a frame can add that extra wow factor to the piece.  We are experienced framers of Eric Christensen Artwork.  Contact us for more information on framing this piece today.
