Message from the Artist: A well-earned rest from her current ascent on this journey of life. She’s just passed the rocks jutting from the sea’s surface, so the difficulties are obvious. The ocean offers choppy waves and interest, challenges to overcome, lessons to be learned, and opportunities to stumble and fall. The sky has delivered clouds and moodier moments, but she has advanced and earned this time to sit.

She’s traveling through a demanding chapter of life, and we can all relate, but in the distance, there is calm, deep hope, a transition from cool toward the richness of warmth and contentment. Her courage and persistence have served her well, her sense of hope has been reliably insistent.

The beach grass now appears to be encouraging her, waving in her direction and cheering her on with its fanciful blossoms and delicate strands. There is promise and potential, warmth and beauty ahead, and a duty to focus on what is to come rather than on the rocks already navigated. “The past is a bucket of ashes”, said poet and journalist Carl Sandburg, 100 years ago.

There is more climbing to come (for all of us), clearly, but the steps are there, even if she doesn’t realize at this moment. Can you see them? We need only to see the next couple steps to keep going.

The courage required, as well as the insight to appreciate the moment as it is, can be found within us. We will never be free from waves, storms, and rocks to climb over, but we have great potential.

Types of Art Prints:

Your Art Print will be created onto premium-quality heavyweight paper with an 8-ink process for vibrant, fade-proof color that illuminates YOUR space. Your smooth matte Archival Print will be hand-signed and carefully packaged for safe travels into your hands. I use archival materials so your ready-to-frame artwork will have 100+ beautiful years to inspire tender memories and touch hearts. Even when mom says she doesn't want anything, she may yearn for recognition of her motherhood journey.

Prints 12x12 or smaller are bagged to ship in a sturdy mailer, the title of the Art Print is written on the backing board. Most Art Prints have a small 1/8-inch border and fit standard frames. THICK MARGIN and EMBELLISHED Prints have 3/4-inch borders. 



••Hand-Embellished and Signed Art Prints••

A 12x12 Thick Margin Print is hand-accented with paint for brush-stroke texture. I take your print to my clean work table and add an artist’s touch to make your embellished Art Print one-of-a-kind and collectible. I autograph the front and sign and date the back of your Embellished print. Your print is then packaged in an acid free bag with a backing board, and gift wrapped before shipping in a sturdy mailer.

An Embellished Print allows for eye color changes, or color accents added to hair. I can darken or lighten hair, or add some facial hair, all with paint. I can even add names or dates, written with fine marker. Provide notes at check-out if you'd like your Embellished Print personalized with eye or hair color adjustments.

Allow 2 days before shipping, for creation and drying time.
