Is that the surface of the sun or what?

Is that the surface of the sun or what?

Here are a couple more of the very planetary and/or solar photographs. I've put up part of a series which remind me at least of our sun, even though they may not be... These make good options for abstract poster prints or canvas prints because of their simple forms and bold colors.

Ordering Process from C Ribet at FineArtAmerica

Ordering Process from C Ribet at FineArtAmerica

I want to explain the ordering process from this artist website hosted by FineAartAmerica and how the FineArtAmerica printing and fulfillment process works for open editions and cards and the like vs. the limited editions at CRibet.com online art gallery. All steps in the creative process including printing of the final print for limited editions is done by me, but for the open editions printing and fulfillment is handled by FineArtAmerica. For stretched canvas C Ribet artwork, art on acrylic or art on metal, only FineArtAmerica open editions are available. I can't print myself on acrylic or metal, but they can. Similarly, the note cards FineArtAmerica prints are superior quality than the cards I used to print myself, so you should buy greeting cards at this web gallery.

How the FineArtAmerica fulfillment and ordering works:

1. Browse images here at the website (this is http://c-ribet.artistwebsites.com) hosted through FineArtAmerica

2. Select an image you want as a print, card etc. and click on it to go to that image detail page
- on the right you will see options for art products (Canvas Print, Framed Print, Cards etc.)
- click on the price below the art product you would like to get to the next screen

3. Product Selection Screen
- the screen background color changes depending up on the art product (usually to white)
- pick the image size
- Follow the steps in the tabs on the right of the page
- e.g. for Framing 1. Size 2. Frame 3. Mat 4. Paper 5. Finish
- when done (you can preview frames and mats online) click the blue arrow 'ADD TO CART'

4. Shopping Cart (still http only, not yet https)
- here confirm the selections in your order then click the top right blue arror 'Check Out'

5. Login/Guest Page (still http only - no confidential information yet...)
- use the login feature if you are a FineArtAmerica member or checkout as Guest

NOTE: HTTPS SECURITY STARTS NOW

6. Payment and Purchase Page 1 (https security has started)
- Now that you are asked for personal and payment information you are at HTTPS security level
- you are also now (if you look at your URL) at the https//fineartamerica.com/ domain
- you are no longer at http://c-ribet.artistwebsites.com/

7. Confirmation of order and order Preview (https security continues)
- the next page remains at https://fineartamerica.com/ domain
- confirm that your order is correct and place the order

8. Thank you page
- you may now end up at a page at "http://artistwebsites.com" which is the top level domain for c-ribet.artistwebsites.com
- this is normal, but it may require you to reset your cookies before you can return to http://c-ribet.artistwebsites.com

You will receive order confirmation, shipment details, package tracking, customer support for returns (30 day money back guarantee) from FineArtAmerica.com - and they will be creating and shipping your purchase for you.

If you have any problems at all, please let me know using the contact form at this website.

New abstract dewdrop artwork of planetary bodies and the darkness of space

New abstract dewdrop artwork of planetary bodies and the darkness of space

I have posted a series of new rain drop / dew drop images with a very sci-fi alien world feel to them. The image for this blog entry is one of them. While they are all macro water photographs, they are extremely abstract images and conjure an alien feeling. These are different from some of the more contemplative orbscapes I have posted before. Enjoy.

Sig Sauer Pistol in Black and White

Sig Sauer Pistol in Black and White

I am posting some black and white only images of the Sig Sauer P220 semi automatic. I already had a few images of this gun in near black and white and one or two of the P220 trigger in black and white, but not as many as people want. So I am adding a few closeups of the Sig P200 barrel for those of you who want Sig gun posters and such in black and white only.

Subscribe Tab

The 'Subscribe' tab allows you to send me your email address so that I can reach you by email.

If you provide your email, you will get periodic mailings. At the moment the frequency of these emails is infrequent, but I will try to be more pro-active about events or meaningful batches of new works.

This is not some Facebook style email system that will spam you with endless 'update' messages about nothing, as I have to compose each email and manually process it... hence the low frequency of emails to this date!

Obviously, any time you get an email there will be an option to unsubscribe.

Some new P220 Artwork including Color

Some new P220 Artwork including Color

I've been posting Sig Sauer P220 art which mostly mirrors the black and white metallic colors of the P220, but I have repeated requests for more color variety in the art prints. I can't paint the Sig pink, but I can provide colors as context based on the background to the gun. I've put up a couple of variations today. The photo for this blog entry is one bathed in red, and with a different perspective looking down the sights http://c-ribet.artistwebsites.com/art/all/zzz+guns+and+ammo/all. The colors not only help with 'decor' for those to whom that matters, but also set the mood in a different way from the straight black and white images.

More Point Blank

More Point Blank

Popular demand calls for more Point Blank images of the Sig Sauer P220, so we are going to be posting a few variations on that close up of the Sig barrel (the wrong end to be on)...
