Message from the Artist: Not all is peaches and cream in a home with small children, and sometimes I wonder if I’m a hypocrite by painting only those sweet moments.
This piece is heavy for me – I fall from grace and bark at my little ones occasionally... For a variety of reasons I’ve asked my children to forgive me and they me. I believe in the power of forgiveness.
Page 91 in “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise L. Hay hit home for me in this mention: “when we are stuck, that usually means there is some more forgiving to be done. When we do not flow freely with life in the present moment, it usually means we are holding on to a past moment. It can be regret, sadness, hurt, fear or guilt, blame, anger, resentment, and sometimes even the desire for revenge. Each one of these states comes from a space of unforgiveness, and refusal to let go and come into the present moment. Love is always the answer to healing of any sort. And the pathway to love is forgiveness. Forgiveness dissolves resentment…” What a fantastic book.
In this painting, the mother is very nearly looking toward the sky, as if to confirm the forgiveness that she is either giving or receiving.

Paper Prints are created on smooth, heavy, matte (not shiny) paper. Archival means they are acid-free and will last a lifetime. Paper prints are autographed and packaged in an acid-free sleeve. Prints up to 12x12 inches include an acid-free board for safe arrival in a stiff mailer. 13x19 inch prints are sleeved, rolled and shipped in a heavy-duty tube. If your order includes a 13x19 inch print, additional prints will also be rolled.
Choose THIN or THICK margins on your paper print (see image above) ~ thick margins act as a “mat” or “spacer” when your print is framed. Thin margins allow for a larger printed image and can be framed with or without a mat.
Stretched Canvas Prints are on high quality cotton for amazing sharpness and quality. Stretched Canvas Prints have 1.5-inch edges printed in a rich dark color (NO white margins). 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. They arrive with a hanging wire on the back. No framing necessary.
