661.945.1718 http://www.graphic-experience.com/ Doug Oliver has been a significant contributor to the art of the American West for more than three decades. His landscape images of soaring skies and panoramic vistas are well known throughout the contemporary art world.
He was born in Dayton, Ohio relocating with his family to California as a young boy. The grandeur of the western landscape had a profound influence on him.

We, at the Graphic Experience, want to touch on a couple of very important things about custom picture framing. Never underestimate the value of a just the “right frame” on an art piece, whether it is a photo, print or an original. One can take a GREAT piece of art and totally demean the greatness of the piece by putting a “not-so-great” frame on it ! The opposite can happen also. You can make a “not-so-great “ art piece look like a million bucks by choosing a fabulous frame to enhance the piece in a really surprising way ! We can help you do that in a way that fits everyone’s budget.
We also wanted to tell all of our loyal and long-time customers THANK YOU for continuing to give us your business. You are truly the reason we have been going for 33 years now ! Some of you have become more than clients, you are now considered friends. Thanks you for sharing your lives with us, through your family photos and your personal items of delight to be framed !
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention all of the great and talented artists, the majority of them LOCAL, that we are very pleased to represent in our shop:
Doug Oliver, Donna Weil, Sal Vasquez, Jim Seargeant, David Faust, Dennis Calaba, Sallie Thatcher, Kay Hendrickson, Jonathan Smith, Arturo and Ana Castenon,
Ken Kaylor, Tom Kaylor.

"Tuesday Afternoon"

Posted on November 20, 2012 at 4:26pm 0 Comments



Tuesday afternoon,

I'm just beginning to see, now I'm on my way

It doesn't matter to me, chasing the clouds away.



Something, calls to me,

The trees are drawing me near, I've got to find out why?

Those gentle voices I hear, explain it all with a sigh.



I'm looking at myself reflections of my mind,

It's just the kind of day to…

The importance of the hand written note

Posted on November 2, 2012 at 11:15am 0 Comments

In this day of the social media revolution, texting, online chatting, etc., the hand written note is rapidly becoming obsolete. Yet, how many of us still really appreciate getting that special card with a special personalized note written in it?

I know I do.

How many of us still have those special notes tucked away in a drawer to be taken out and looked at again and again ?



I do.

I really treasure the ones that are from people that are no longer on this earth…

Vintage Clothing

Posted on October 10, 2012 at 12:14pm 0 Comments

I love old clothes. I fanatically love vintage clothes. Some of my vintage clothes were new when I bought them. Ha!

One of my favorite pastimes (when I have time !) is going to the stores on Melrose, such as American Vintage and Jet Rag on La Brea. I see so many things that I used to wear and wish I'd kept. Other things I see, I used to have and just plain wore them out and turned 'em into rags.

Another fave place of mine is the Goodwill in Santa Barbara on the corner of…

Fantastic Artist Ken Kaylor

We are very happy to represent Ken Kaylor in our gallery. His work has to be seen to be believed ! Ken Kaylor is a native California painter who lives in Lake Hughes with his wife, Robbie. Ken's first formal art instruction came from his high school teacher Doug Oliver, who became famous for his incredible paintings of the desert skies. Although Ken is, for the most part,…

I love Donna's art and I'm delighted to have it hanging in my living room. I know I'll get lots of wonderful comments about it (I can't wait to show it off). If those of you at Graphic Experience or if you, Donna, want to come and check out the painting's new home, just let me know. You are always welcome. I'm delighted with the piece and so is my husband (Mr. Hard-to-Please {:->).

I found and bought a beautiful painting by artist Donna Weil at The Graphic Experience. It's brightening my living room as I write.

It's actually the company B-day. We opened three years ago today and we're really grateful to still be in business during these tough economic times. We look forward to many prosperous years to come. Thank you for the comment.
