Photographic Story I took this photograph during the 2008 election. I was on vacation with my two Republican cousins. When we drove past this I begged them to turn around so I could photograph it, but they would have nothing to do with Hillary until I told them what the folks had done on their fence, then they made the U-turn. Whether you like Hillary or not, I think there’s some fun humor in this! The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Niki prints her images on fiber-base black and white mat surface paper in the darkroom, then using Q-tips and cotton balls, she applies a thin coat of oil paint over the surface allowing the image to gently be seen through the oil paint. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
