Message from the Artist: Blankets crafted into nests to sit upon, plastic eggs beneath us. Patient mama bird. Driveways carved into gravel, metal cars running round and round. Our first wheels. Playful children.

An imaginative world of children, friends together. Crawling through tunnels apparently woven by animals in thickets, just the right size to wiggle through. Climbing into trees to watch for approaching ‘enemies’. Tucking into piles of hay as a mama cat does to hide her kittens. Rolling with buddies, laughter and dust. Scaling the ladder to the top of the barn – our super-secret special place. Our first attempt at a house of our own. Spiders and beetles, birds and mice – they didn’t worry us all that much – the desire for play was stronger.

The critters must have watched in awe: these wind-swept children, scrapes and raspberries, racing the sun, skipping meals. Crafting their worlds with boards and branches. Wild freedom. Boots in the mud, secrets shared, burns whipped into legs from racing through tall weeds in shorts – raised nettle bumps, connecting to make mesas on our skin. Mud makes the itch go away.

Returning home with mud up to the knees, webs in the hair, scratches on arms and dirt between toes. Wild and run, tan and tired. Unconsciously grateful for Nature’s watchful eye and protection. Content. Friendship. Childhood.

A print from the Wild Tenderness Collection.

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.
