Feeling Strong - Tandem Babywearing Art Print
Message from the Artist: We get pushed down, squashed, shamed, lied to. We are disregarded, ghosted and flattened... and we stay down… for a while.
But eventually, we must get up again. Crawl from our downed location and find our feet. There is so much pain. And the little people in our lives can show us the purity and innocence of what matters around us. We can out-loud ask them for their advice and even their silent gooey smiles can give us the answer. Or they can provide us with a succinct and straight from the heart, seemingly obvious response. They know. They know the answer is to not take things personally. To love what is. And WE know. We know that we are only in control of ourselves – we’ve taught our kids this!
We teach that we have no say in what others say about us… but still… A little tweak in the air, a memory, a message can knock us down again.
Get back up. Take hold of the precious ones in your life, big and small. Feel strong and move towards the light. Leave the dark, heavy, sad behind. And don’t be surprised when the wise ones pull a flickering body of light from that previous darkness. When they open YOUR eyes to some sweet bright-spot lesson that the dingy troubles left behind.

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.
