Golf Club Atlas Posting

Thanks to Chip for posting a story on GCA about his new giclee print of the 11th at Pacific Dunes. He also shot a couple of fun pictures of the hole number written in pencil and also the print number. Glad you like it Chip !

As promised...National Golf Links Painting underway

Taking a moment here to show the nearly completed National Golf Links of America painting.

I'm pleased with its progression and really think the perspective is iconic. It will be neat for the general public and golf loving masses to get a real appreciation for this place when it hosts the Walker Cup in 2013. We will get to see the course on TV!!!

It is considered by many, architect C.B. Macdonald's crowning achievement. Starting his involvment at the site in 1906, he was determined to build the most noteworthy course outside of the British Isles.

In the painting I aimed to capture the raw and linksy approach that they take to everyday maintenance. Playability and firmness outweighs "bright green". Based on its "fast and firm" conditioning and its exciting design which replicates or improves upon features from the best courses overseas, it is considered by many well versed golfers "the most fun golf course in America".

The new Joshua C. F. Smith giclees are here

The newly printed giclees have just arrived and they look stunning! The images and the colors have been reproduced on Hahnemuhle paper with archival inks that will stay bright and sharp forever. The work looks great on the website, but in person it is different experience. The work will be on sale shortly at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon and Ballyneal in Colorado. Above is the image of the 3rd at Royal County Down, one of my favorite images.
