I encourage my collectors to follow their hearts when looking for their next (or first!) painting or print. To lean toward the pieces that speak to their emotions and pull on their feelings, versus worrying about likeness (eye and hair color).
I own several original paintings, and I love them because they FEEL like me and my boys. They don’t necessarily LOOK like us, but they FEEL like my heart feels. And that is what counts.
I’m sad when someone loves a painting so intensely but chooses to walk away because the eye color isn’t a match. That is a missed opportunity to have art in their lives that reminds them of why they work so hard…
… a missed chance for your child to everyday SEE how their mama feels about them, because as moms we sometimes don’t get the words right, or even the actions.
For years I’ve contemplated embellishing my prints: adding paint to create texture, emphasis, sparkle, magic. This also allows me to make small color changes for eyes, and highlights to hair.
I’ve researched, tested and contemplated and have made this happen – Embellished Art Prints are now available:
2) Select the “Embellished Print” option (if you don’t
see it, contact me to check)
3) Tell me in your Order Comments if you want an eye color changed
Several collectors have now purchased Embellished Art Prints and I have loved creating them!
Here’s what an Embellished Art Print is:
~I created your art print on my high-end printer onto premium smooth heavyweight matte (not shiny) paper with an 8-ink archival color process. Archival means the colors are rich, vibrant and fade-proof to last a lifetime, 100+ years.
~High quality, color resistant prints are signed in pencil on the front right corner.
~I take your art print to my clean workbench and adorn it in some areas with original paint using my brushes. I add color, texture, highlights and some accents that complement the print, enhancing but not modifying the colors of the artwork (unless otherwise requested, just make a note in your order).
~This makes for a more collectible and valuable piece of finished art.
~Your Embellished Art Print is truly unique, and especially enhanced just for you, one at a time by me. I wrap them and package for safe shipping.
