Message from the Artist: Rustling up the faith to trust another can be hard. We wonder who will hurt us. And some do. How honest and true can we really be? May we travel through life with kindness and an open heart, patience and wise skepticism, too. May we have an inner knowing for those who need connection, and those who prey off vulnerability. May our lives be richer for having trust and faith. May we grow through openness. Our little girl, here, is reaching out to a fella who has lived with the burden of being feared. She sees something real in him and trusts him. Her trust opens his heart, and he sees us. He is humbled by her authenticity and her acceptance of him.

Finding faith to trust is hard, we always wonder who will hurt us. How honest and true can we really be? I believe in opening our hearts – I believe that if we travel through life with our hearts available, true and kind, that those who are also true will be drawn to us. Those who leave will leave and that’s probably for the best. Always kindness, though. In this world of fear and separation, I worry about the faith required, and those who have trusted and were then hurt. Hurt by those who prey on vulnerability. My little girl here, she is offering blind kindness through trust, and this little foxy guy feels it. He is humbled by her authenticity and her acceptance of him.

A print from the Wild Tenderness Collection. Your print will NOT have a printed watermark on it, of course.

~Choose a print size above.
~Paper/Canvas print details below.
~Prints are made from original paintings.
~Prints will not have a watermark.
~Paper prints ship in 1-2 days.
~Canvas prints ship in 4-6 days.


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.

Please allow 4-6 days
for your Stretched Canvas Print to be carefully created before shipping. See Stretched Canvas Print Samples

If you don’t see a print that makes your heart sing, consider having a custom original painting created, inspired by your family. Learn more.
