Description Of This Artwork
Message from the Artist: As I worked on this painting, the more it became about the mother protecting the older child, vs. protecting the baby or toddler: the more easily sheltered. Watching over the school age child as he goes out into the world. Beginning his school years; tucked into the day to day, 6-hours-a-day, 5-days-a-week schedule. He is removed from his family and his mama, vulnerable to all that is out there. When I watch my six year old sleep, I sometimes cry ~ wondering the thoughts that he thinks – he is so smart. I wonder if inside he is confused, wondering how I could have always been there, and then all of the sudden send him off for six hours a day. He is a bright star, a sensitive, emotional, talented and change-the-world kind of boy. What does “getting used to” the way-it-is mean? As our children start to see us less and less do they start to wonder more and more our priorities? Here is a promise I silently make to my sleeping and growing child: I promise to everyday look into your face ~ into your eyes ~ to read your story. To take each day 15 minutes at a time and never assume that all is well unless you tell me it is so. I promise to listen, I promise to share. I promise to be there for you as we discover your route into this world of possibilities.

  • Two Types of Print Options for You! Each print is created from an original KmBerggren painting. Both paper and Stretched Canvas Prints are fresh archival prints created for durability and long life. They are expected to last a lifetime. What a way to pass-down your family's moments!
  • Stretched Canvas Prints: A gorgeous Stretched Canvas Print, printed on the highest quality cotton canvas to insure amazing sharpness and quality.

  • See some Stretched Canvas Print Samples here.
  • Archival Paper Prints: paper prints are available in 8x10", 12x12" or 13x19" sizes. An archival, high quality, signed print on heavy weight smooth paper. 8x10” and 12x12” prints fit perfectly into a standard-sized frame. 13x19" paper prints are best when custom framed, or framed in a larger standard-sized frame, with a custom cut window mat. All paper prints have a white margin for framing ease. Images are not cropped to create prints, you get the whole image. Thus, square images will have deeper margins on the top and bottom of the paper (vs the side margins) in 8x10" and 13x19" prints.
  • Shipping Details: Each paper print is signed by the artist in the lower right corner, and enclosed in a protective clear bag. 8x10" and 12x12" paper prints have an acid free backing board and are shipped in a stiff mailer. 13x19" prints are gently rolled and shipped in a triangular shipping tube. Stretched Canvas Prints are shipped in a sturdy box, wrapped for protection.
