These silver gelatin, selenium toned, fine art prints are available as an 8x10 large format contact print or murals up to 40"x60".

Each piece of artwork is personally printed by Tim Layton, processed to museum archival standards, signed, mounted, and matted on 100 percent rag museum board.

All prints are carefully prepared and packaged in specially designed protective shipping boxes, and shipped fully insured via UPS ground.

Normally there is a long waiting period for Tim's original prints. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a print with a much shorter waiting period (ships in 6-8 weeks).

All of the botanicals in this collection are photographed by Tim with an 8x10 Large Format view camera using analog film.  The film is developed in Tim's darkroom and then hand printed one at a time using a custom 8x10 large format enlarger.  Each piece of artwork is developed and processes according to museum archival standards to ensure the artwork will last a lifetime.  

I don't outsource any part of my process, so when you receive a piece of artwork from me, you know that my hands were directly involved in every step of the process.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Tim Layton at Wild Horses of Missouri - Broadfoot HerdTim Layton at Wild Horses of Missouri - Broadfoot Herd

My artwork is a direct portal to my heart and soul, and it communicates my deepest thoughts and emotions. 

If you want to know who I am - look deeply with curiosity and sit still in the mountains for the day. 

My fine art printmaking process is devoid of computers and digital gear and every part of the process is done by me personally. 

My darkroom-based methods are proven to be archival and continue to be unparalleled by modern digital techniques.  

I don't outsource any part of my process, so when you receive a piece of artwork from me, you know that my hands were directly involved in every step of the process. 

Researchers and physicians have studied nature-based artwork for over fifty years.  The body of research confirms that our sense of wellbeing instantly improves when we view photographs of natural subjects such as flowers, trees, and wildlife.  Researchers also confirmed nature-based artwork lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and anxiety, and shortens recovery time from illness. 

When viewing my black and white fine art prints something magical happens that is unexpected. Your mind engages in a way that isn’t possible if the art were in color. Your mind fills in the gaps and you become part of the image.  You are my co-creator.  Together, we create something new that has the potential to forever changes both of us.
