Do you feel trapped? : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

I'm just wondering if you feel trapped living on an island? As a mainlander I can't imagine the confinetment of such a small area!

Another question: What is a giclee?

comment: I'm so glad this site is online, I enjoy the artwork intensely.

With almost 6,500 square miles on eight islands, there seems more than enough to do. Hawaii is the fourth smallest state, but it's a little tougher crossing the state lines...

With Oahu's population base of over 835,000, you can get just about anything you could in a major city and if it's seclusion you want, then the neighbor islands definitely have some very secluded spots. If it's a long drive so that you can stop in country stores, then the island of Hawaii would be you longest drive (about 4-5 hours round trip 8((((() Oh well, Hawaii can't have it all 8)))

Pronounced "jee-clay", the term Giclee comes from French "to spurt". The process for printing the Giclee prints starts with a 4" x 5" transparency of the work which is converted into a digitized format by a computer, color corrected, and then printed on watercolor paper (the same paper that she draws her originals on). The printer "spurts" out the color at 1,200 - 1,800 dots per inch (each dot is about the size of a red blood cell). To further enhance the uniqueness of the Giclee, no two Giclees are alike as they are individually reworked by Teri using Prismacolor and Spectracolor colored pencils. Each print is then signed and numbered by Teri.
