What is a giclee "zhee-clay"Giclée (pronounced [ʒiːˈkleɪ] "zhee-clay" or /dʒiːˈkleɪ, from French IPA: [ʒiˈkle]), is an invented name (i.e. a neologism) for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word "giclée" is derived from the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray". It was coined in 1991 by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working in the field, to represent any inkjet-based digital print used as fine art. The intent of that name was to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the type of fine art prints artists were producing on those same types of printers. The name was originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such prints.

somewhere near Idyllwild,CA
A couple years ago, a friend showed me a tree, that ancient Idyllwildians named "The Witches Tree" It is located somewhere near Idyllwild in the San Jacinto mtns. It is amazing. Its been said that there's often been sightings of wicked wild dancing there silhouetted by the light of the moon. One night a year, be aware that on ole Hallowed Eve "the eve before All Hallows' Day," rumour has it that local Witches will gather that night, to dance creating energy for conjuring of spells. .
I ve been sworn to secrecy of its location, for fear of being turned into a toad or worse. . .
