Does anyone here have any BWCA paintings or prints that would be larger that I could hang on a larger bare wall? I'm sure there are some professional photographers on here so if you have a site, please link it for me.

I was at the Sivertson Gallery in Duluth this weekend. Tons of north country artwork. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link but I don't think the gallery competes with the paid advertisers on here.

There are some good items there. Maybe they should advertise here. Possible they do not know of this site.

There are several artists and pro photographers on this site. It sure how they advertise. There is also the artist forum and photography forum . U could post your question in those.

I have this one by Michael Sieve on my wall. It reminds me of a spot we typically will have a shorelunch. Love it!

You mentioned photographers, so don't forget HamerNaturePhotos. Gary (ghamer) has posted many YouTube slideshow trip reports here. Just scroll down the page a few posts for the most recent remakes of older ones.

I have this watercolor by Gary Spetz hanging over the fireplace. Image size is 19x26. Mine is 7 of a 600 print run. I have had it 25+ years, but it is still available from the artist.

I second Gary’s work. He’s a great photographer. I have this print of his on my wall.

On the whimsical side, Rick Allen of Kenspeckle (Duluth MN) has some great prints. Even a great Coffee Break poster.

I've had a couple of my photos printed on canvas. They're both 16 x 20.

If you're interested in using your own pictures and blowing them up, they can sometimes get grainy if you don't have super high-rez pictures. I discovered that using a free internet tool to modify them makes them more suitable for large printing and in many ways better than the original. It also helps cover some sins in pictures if you don't take pictures like Lightfoot.

The website I use is lunapic.com. I had no experience in photoshop or anything similar and made print-worthy photos in an hour or two. I used the 'art' modifications and played from there. You could probably make even better ones if you knew what you're doing. Very powerful, simple stuff.

Luna Pic
You upload your images and modify them and then download them. I had them printed printed on canvas and they turned out great. Below are some before and after.

Sometimes the mods get crazy and the results are laughable.


Another before and after and some other modified pics:



One warning, you can spend hours playing with the effects and lose days if you wanted to.
