The sun sets on the beach in Summerland, California on March 30, 2014. Mike Armstrong photo.
Summerland is a census-designated-place in Santa Barbara County, California. Tar from natural oil seeps in Summerland was used by the Chumash people and Spanish missionaries. This oil was later developed commercially. At one time the beaches at Summerland were covered with piers and oil derricks. All of that is gone now. What remains is once more a stretch of pristine California coast.
Summerland Sunset is a gorgeous image of a warm Pacific coast sunset.
About our prints…
Our archival, art quality images like Summerland Sunset are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.
Each Summerland Sunset print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board. All TSG prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
We cut our own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what we have in stock but we always pick something that compliments the artwork. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send us a note and we will try to accommodate you. For Summerland Sunset we usually use a double mat, often in shades of rust, brown and/or gray. Sometimes we use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. We recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
