Free Cards Friday ~ Beyond Expectations ~ Archival Prints Taking Over!

I’ve been offering Archival 13×19 Prints for a couple weeks now, and many have realized the value in the fact that these new pieces will last a lifetime. I am glad I invested in the printer and the materials to make these new pieces a reality.

~ In a world with so much thrown away, making my products last is important to me ~

ARCHIVAL: An image meant to have lasting utility, in this case 150-200 years. Archival materials are meant to last indefinitely, are of museum grade and the pigmets (inks) are lightfast.

When a piece touches you and delivers the chills that stem from your loving relationship with your child(ren), that piece should be passed down ~ shared with the next generation. With the new 13×19 archival prints in the Online Shop, that is possible.

Thus, as you can imagine, I have grown fond of these archival pieces and their yummy feel. SO, beginning in the next week, I am going to begin creating the 8×10 and 12×12 prints using archival materials, as well. Why enjoy your piece for 10 years, when your family can enjoy it for 150 years?

•8×10 prints in stock will remain at the current $14 price, and fresh new archival pieces will reflect their durability and long life with a $17 price ~ they will also have a larger image size on the 8×10 format (more bang-o for the buck-o).

•12×12 prints that are currently ready-to-go in the studio basket will be available at $26 until they are all shipped off to loving families. Fresh new 12x12s will be archival, high quality and available for $29.
•13×19 prints will remain their long-lastin’ selves at $54.

I would LOVE LOVE to know your feedback, THANK YOU in advance.

Do you have any questions or feedback? Great! Email me – I’d be honored to share my urge with you ~ for creating artwork that lasts ~ for taking the time and money to create something that you will cherish for years and years and years and years (vs. just years)

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS ~ new commissioned painting

I’ve teased you with this painting for awhile now, not purposely, but because it took some time to complete to satisfaction

My client for this original painting is a loving mama who was told she could not nurse her 8 week premature daughter when she was born. She held on and worked hard to move her little one from bottles to breast and achieved success at 2 1/2 months. Now at 26 months her vibrant and healthy little girl continues to receive comfort and nourishment ~ and strengthen a bond ~ at her mama’s breast. Thank you A.L.!
