Message from the Artist: She's a painting with two lives, she was created several years ago, then I set her aside. In May, I brought her out and gave her new life, a new baby body, a new soft presence. This painting is one way we can hold onto those squishy sweet huggable moments from when our children were little, even though many of them are going back to school now, picking out bigger clothes, putting on bigger shoes, learning, growing and GOING... without us holding their hand...

You know how some emotions can crack open our hearts after we've just been doing the mundane day-to-day for too long? How some feelings can make us realize that we are *truly* alive, can open our eyes and open our hearts and bring on a rush of invigoration?

***Do you need the mother's eye color changed? I will not charge extra for this - just let me know after you have purchased!***

You may choose a 4-part interest-free payment plan at checkout.

Crack My Heart Open is a 20x20 inch original painting on deep canvas, wired and ready to hang, no framing necessary (but you can frame her if you'd like!) – photos and video don’t fully capture the layers of original paint, and the love that went into this piece. 

The 1 1/2" edges of this painting are richly painted dark brown and the entire painted area is protected with UV Varnish so your original painting will last a lifetime. This piece is signed on the front, labeled and signed on the back, wired and ready to hang where you most need a pick-me-up and a little reminder every day.

Nothing compares to the rich and textured surface of an original painting on canvas. I started my career painting on board, but as soon as I had the opportunity to paint on canvas, I was hooked. I think of skin and bone and breath and life as I create these paintings, and my intention is that they will bless you and bring joy, presence and light into your home. I choose the finest cotton canvases, gallery-wrapped and splined on the back, with no staples on the edges.

Your beautiful painting on canvas will arrive wired and ready to hang. Since the edges are painted and the entire painting sealed and protected with gloss varnish, framing is not necessary, but you can certainly choose to do so.

Your new Original Painting will be shipped to you in a sturdy shipping box, wrapped securely, with a gift for you of a stack of free art cards. This painting will ship via FedEx for US buyers and for international buyers, via USPS International Mail, ready to hang!
