Sofspra was a nationwide, self-serve car wash chain established in the 1960s. The round lights on top of the sign used to be sequentially lit according to which slots were available for washing your car. I wonder if the palm tree is as old as the carwash? Downtown Encinitas is modernizing its storefroonts but I hope Sofspra will endure for a few more decades.
The orginal painting is still available for purchase but I'm thrilled to be able to offer a beautiful Giclee Canvas print of this work. This work can also be printed in different sizes as well on museum quality watercolor papter. Please see below for options and pricing. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
Sofspra Carwash PRINT
All watercolor paper prints are carefully crafted using 310gsm BRIGHT WHITE VELVET FINE ART PAPER, 100% COTTON. This 310g, Bright White, water-resistant velvet fine art paper is made from 100% cotton fiber and is acid and lignin free. Elegance Velvet is a proprietary mouldmade fine art paper that is strong and dimensionally stable. It has a high white point, remarkable ink load capacity, and best-in-class image quality that far exceeds the limitations of virtually every paper of its kind.
Giclee Prints: Giclée (pronounced gee-clay) is a fine-art printing process that uses digital images, high-end printers and archival inks, to print on superior quality canvas material. The word Giclée literally means "to spray," which refers to the way the printer sprays the ink onto the canvas. All my Giclee prints are printed on archival canvas and gallery wrapped on wooden ready-to-hang frames.
