AMATEUR - A person who gives their personal time in pursuit of making art. They do not sell their work regularly as a business.

DIGITAL GICELÉE PAINTING - Original Art is an original digital drawing or painting created by an artist using software such as Art Rage, Gimp, Photo Shop, Corel Painter, etc., with either a tablet and stylus or a mouse. This may be printed on a stretched canvas, a canvas board, or canvas paper which has been framed.

DIGITAL GICELÉE PAINTING OR GICELÉE REPRODUCTION OF ORIGINAL ART - Embellished is an original digital giclée painting, drawing, or reproduction of original art that has been printed on a canvas using digital devices which has been embellished using paint, brush strokes, varnish, etc., to add texture, dimensions, or interest. This may be printed on stretched canvas, canvas board, or canvas paper which has been framed.
