Mike Lathrop’s Artwork, Cards and Gifts available at Caffe Fantastico

Caffe Fantastico

I am pleased to announce I’ve just installed a selection of original paintings, prints, cards, calendars and magnets at Caffe Fantastico, here in Victoria on Kings Street, near Quadra.

One new item I have there are 5×7″ photographs of my paintings, titled and signed, matted in 8×10″ frames. They are on display and available there for $35 +tax. Unlike my other limited edition giclee prints, these are not archival, but should look great for many years, if not decades.

Opalescent Elk Lake Wake at Sunset

This is a larger painting based on the smaller one I recently painted of the same spot and time, Sunset Colours at Elk Lake.

Elk lake sits aside the Patricia Bay Highway, and any time I am driving home to Victoria from that direction it is always a welcome sight. This time we knew we’d have to stop the car and watch the sun set for a while. We’d been watching the clouds turn yellow and pink before we approached, and as always, it was a sublime experience to see them turn to the deep navy blues, reds, purples and oranges as the sun sank slowly into the horizon.

Links to buy the original 30×40″ painting and prints are available here:
