Collared Lizard and Petrified Wood - Petrified Forest National Park - Arizona

A collared lizard warms itself in the sun on a piece of petrified wood. Petrified Forest National Park has some of the largest and most colorful examples of these fossilized trees. It is almost hard to imagine the time scale when it comes to petrified wood. Once upon a time, ancient trees fell into river channels and some were buried by sediment. When the sediment buried the trees fast enough, they were completely cut off from oxygen. This allowed minerals to take over the cells in the tree and eventually filled the mold of the tree. They are now fossils,  perfectly preserved in rock and showing the same shape as the original tree. The trees in Petrified Forest are around 225 million years old. To put that into perspective, this is just about the time dinosaurs started to show up, and many millions of years before they would rule the earth.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
