About Rising Star Trading Company, LLC

Rising Star Trading Company, LLC, was formed in October, 2006, to market giclees, and other media, of certain contemporary western impressionistic images created by artist Malcolm Furlow. The first such image is "Texas Star", an iconic ode to the Texas Longhorn and the Lone Star Flag of Texas, combined into one space. The second image is "Mary's Longhorn" and was commissioned for a 2004 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. The third image is "Boulder Bison", an American buffalo, stampeding directly toward the observer. Other images will follow.

Giclees: a giclees is a computer controlled, fine art print making process on canvas. Similar to the look of a serigraph but no screens are used. It uses a very fine spray of ink, 15 microns in size, and about 4 times smaller than a human hair. The microscopic jet-stream is controlled by a crystal frequency. The print is then coated with up to 15 layers of a waterproof U.V. varnishes.
