Nature for Healing
Nature photographer Mark Clune announces the availability of his work through the Nature for Healing Art Lending Library with no-fee image licensing to patient care facilities and to non-profit organizations for nature conservation projects. Although the aim of the project is to provide easy access to the library through lending, framed works are also available for sale through his parent business Autumn Leaf Photographic Arts.
Gallery quality framed art (with no glass) from the library collection is available to borrow and even rotate at no cost to patient care facilities for viewing in patient treatment and waiting room environments.
For the past decade, Mark Clune has been a resident and exhibiting artist at various art galleries in the El Paso, Texas region. The newly founded Nature for Healing Art Lending Library facilitates his new mission to bring the beauty, inspiration, and solace of nature into partnership with the treatment and healing process of those in need.

About the Original Art Prints
All of the original art prints are printed, varnished, and framed by Mark Clune in his studio using archival pigment inks on canvas or cotton fine art paper. After the print is created, it is then varnished using a high quality liquid acrylic art varnish. Finally, the print is framed without glass or glazing in the same manner and style that a painting would be framed. Print image sizes are typically 16" x 24", 18" x 24", 24" x 36", and 24" x 48". Framing adds an additional 6" to 8" to each dimension.
