Fire Opal


“Fire Opal” Is a darkly sweet dragonling painting I painted for a group show called “Fantastical Beasts” held at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles.  This is the first piece I painted since beginning my recovery from cancer.  I thought about fantastical things from my childhood and immediately thought of the fire opal ring my grandmother had.  I’ve always been a rock hound and fire opals are one of the most beautiful stones I have ever seen.  When I was a kid I thought the ring must have surely had some sort of magical properties.  Maybe it did.

Our Masterpiece Limited Editions are sold out, but we have Open Edition Canvases which are remarqued with the JBG initial on the front, measure 8″x10″ (also wrapped & ready-to-hang) and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with archival inks. A small white border is included around the printed area of the artwork. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.

Open Edition Canvas Prints

These prints are made on canvas with archival inks and varnished with a UV resistant finish. They are gallery-wrap style — wrapped on boards, stretched over a frame and are shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. We only release these open edition canvases once Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvases have been sold out. The open edition canvases are on deep gallery wrapped boards. The Open Editions are set to a specific size format and there may be some cropping around the edges from the original artwork. NOTE: The watermark in the image is only for digital display and does not appear in the originals or prints.
