Prints Now Available Through FineArtAmerica

A large percentage of my work is now available through my FineArtAmerica website at http://paul-velgos.artistwebsites.com/

FineArtAmerica is one of the largest and most popular art print websites in the world. They offer an extensive selection of print options including some of the largest print sizes available such as 48″ x 72″. They offer metal prints, acrylic prints, canvas prints, framed prints, and standard prints.

While a lot of my prints are used as wall art in homes, a growing number of larger canvas prints are being used commercially for business offices in the Chicago area and also nationally. My popular Chicago photography is available through their Chicago Art category and looks great on a home or office wall.

If you need any kind of prints I would highly recommend giving FineArtAmerica a try.

New Chicago Black and White Photos Collection

Chicago Icons in Black and White

The photos in the Chicago Black and White collection include some of Chicago’s most popular and iconic attractions. Black and white can totally change the character of a photo. So I’ve transformed photos of the Chicago skyline, skyscrapers, Wrigley Field, Union Station, Chicago Theatre, Buckingham Fountain, The Bean Cloud Gate, Sears Tower / Willis Tower, Field Museum, Picasso Sculpture and more.

The editing in this collection has been applied consistently across all photos in the series. These photos would be useful for a project such as prints for decorating an office.

Currently there are about 50 photos in the collection and I’ll add more soon.

New Buffalo Michigan Photos Updated

New Buffalo Michigan Lighthouse and Beach

I added some new photos to the New Buffalo photo gallery.

New Buffalo is a great place. It’s a short drive from Chicago so it’s great for a day trip or a weekend getaway. It’s a small beach town at the Southwest corner of Michigan with some nice little shops and restaurants. One of my favorite places there was the Stray Dog Restaurant. It caught fire in the summer of 2012 and was torn down. Good news is it’s being rebuilt so hopefully they keep some of the atmosphere that made it great.

One of the more familiar sights is the lighthouse. It sits at the entrance to the beach among the rolling dunes and beach grass. Because the lighthouse is on land instead of a Jetty it makes for some unique pictures.

Chicago Digital Art and Paintings

I’m now offering digital fine art paintings of some of my Chicago photography.

These offer a slightly unique twist of popular Chicago attractions such as the Chicago skyline, Buckingham Fountain, Chicago Theatre, and Wrigley Field.

Prints and canvas wraps are available in a wide variety of sizes by ordering online through the website.

Here’s an example. I’ve added several more to a gallery named Fine Art Digital Paintings.

New Newport Beach California Photos

Some new Newport Beach California photos are available to buy as prints at my Photoshelter website and some are available to license as stock photos at my Getty Images portfolio. These images are from early 2010 and include Newport Pier, Balboa Peninsula, Dory Fishing Fleet Market, Balboa Fun Zone, Balboa Island Ferry, Balboa Peninsula, The Wedge, Newport Jetty, Balboa Peninsula, Balboa Market, and a lot of familiar Newport Beach sights.

I found out a few things have changed since I took these photos. The famous old Balboa Market has been torn down and is now a parking lot. I was able to capture a few images while it was still standing including the Balboa Market Sign. And the Balboa Fun Zone bumper cars, carousel and some other attractions no longer exist and have been replaced by the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum.
