Message from the Artist: This little one’s eyes came to me during meditation – and the rest of the painting very quickly followed. I put it all together in my mind and was literally shaking with excitement to get to the studio to create her ❤ The eyes came to me, perhaps because I witnessed the birth of my friend’s son the night before, and his innocent newborn eyes mesmerized me. He gazed upon his mama like he’d known her for years. And he probably had.
In this painting, the butterfly was a surprise, and the child’s little hand and pointy finger, made me right away think of Buddha. Which was a treasured turn of events for me. There is a richness I sought with this piece – delicate clarity with just the right amount of sweetness without being too cutesy. I think I got there. Do you?
This little child is truly tender-hearted, and calls to mind the daughter of one of my long-time collectors. But she also, obviously, developed so sincerely in the heart of her mama ~ nurtured and accepted. Encircled with whimsy, nature and loveliness.

••Autographed Art Prints on paper••
Art Prints on paper are created with the finest archival
materials to last 100+ years. Premium smooth heavyweight matte (not shiny)
paper with an 8-ink archival color process. Archival means the colors are rich,
vibrant and fade-proof to last a lifetime.
This is a high quality, color resistant giclee print,
signed by the artist in pencil on the front lower right and packaged in an
acid-free sleeve. Prints sized 12x12 or smaller are bagged with an acid-free
backing board for protection and shipped in a flat stiff mailer. The title of
the painting will be written on the back of the board.
**12x12, 8x8 and 5x5 inch Art prints have a 1/8-inch white
border around the image for handling and framing. Unless you
choose a THICK MARGIN print.
THICK MARGIN prints have a 3/4-inch white border
around the image, with the image being smaller on the paper.
These print sizes fit in standard-sized frames.
••Embellished Art Prints on Paper••
(an option for SOME designs)
A 12x12 inch giclee print on heavyweight paper is
embellished to add brush-stroke texture, a special artist’s touch and to make
your print unique and one-of-a-kind.
I take your art print to a clean workbench, then adorn it
in some areas with original paint using my brushes. I add painted color and
some accents that complement the print, enhancing but not modifying the colors
of the artwork (unless otherwise arranged). This makes for a more collectible
and valuable piece of finished art.
**The 12x12 inch Embellished Art Prints have a 3/4-inch
white margin around the print image, making the actual artwork 10.5 x 10.5
inches with an edge for handling and framing.
Signed by the artist in pencil on
the front lower right and packaged in an acid-free sleeve with backing board for
protection. The title of the painting will be written on the back of the board.
Embellished Art Prints are carefully wrapped in paper
then shipped flat in a stiff mailer with free goodies, of course. Please allow an extra day for the Embellishing
process before I sign and ship your piece.
••Stretched Canvas Prints••
Canvas prints are professionally printed on high quality
cotton canvas for amazing sharpness and quality, then stretched over 1-1/2-inch
wooden bars. The 1-1/2-inch edges are printed in a rich dark color that
complements the print.
Stretched Canvas Prints are the
closest option you can get to an original painting.
Stretched Canvas Prints are wrapped and shipped in a
sturdy box direct from my photo lab (not from my studio). They arrive ready to
hang, with no framing necessary.
Please allow 4-6 days for your Stretched Canvas Print to
be carefully created before shipping.
See Stretched Canvas Print Samples.
