Artist's description:

I think mostly we forget we are on a planet spinning in space. I've been interested in the strong vertical with a "canopy" for a bit lately. It's not a tree but I think of trees. It's not flowers though I think of them. The bird is carrying something that looks like a heart. Maybe it's me saying, here is my offering. I made it for you to see.

Created using acrylics and pastels on cotton canvas. The painting continues around the sides. The pastels are fixed with a pastel fixative, the whole painting by a uv-filtering varnish. I love all my paintings when I first make them but some I am very, very pleased with. This is one of my favorites. It's really gorgeous.

No prints. Ever.
I do not license my paintings for reproduction as prints or in any other media, so the original you purchase from me remains the one and only in existence.

Quotes are estimates of ready-to-hang, boxed shipping to most destinations via UPS (domestic) and DHL (international).

If courier rates to ship ready-to-hang to your address substantially exceed my estimate, I may ship the canvas rolled to bring the cost closer to the estimate and will contact you to confirm that is okay with you.

You will receive a tracking number so you'll be able to see your painting's progress to your door.

Customs fees and duties are the responsibility of the recipient.

Signed front and back, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
