Darma's Reflection

Darma's Reflection

My eyes are wells of knowing

Which you can dip into 

to quench your thirst for connection

 

I am mystery and paradox

I open the way to a labyrinth of discovery

to which you hold the key

 

Only you can open the doors of your inner sight  

I will be waiting there for you

Trust… me…

 

~Kim McElroy

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE ART

    This painting portrays a moment of magic that occurred with my mare, Darma. I was photographing her in the shadows of her stall. Those were the days of film, and when I had the photos developed, I saw a horse reflection in her eye. I was momentarily confused because she had been the only horse in the stall. Then I realized the image was of herself in her own eye. There doesn’t seem to be an explanation for how this could have happened. This incredible occurrence captures so much of what she means to me. Her name seems unusual for a racehorse, though I suppose it makes sense since Dharma is the Sanskrit word in Eastern religion representing the chosen path. Darma is my chosen path. She has always led me to truth and insight.

    This work of art depicts an infinite mirror of self-reflection and is the card representing Relationship as Mirror in the Way of the Horse Equine Archetypes for Self-Discovery Book and Card Set by Linda Kohanov.

PLEASE NOTE: International Print Shipments:

​Free Shipping is only offered on Domestic USA shipments and doesn't apply to Canadian and International Shipping. With the variety of products we offer, it is impossible to accurately predict Shipping charges to different countries. Shipping costs for prints are calculated AFTER checkout based on package weight and distance. Customers will receive an invoice to cover any additional costs. Please note that we are only charging the amount to ship, which exceeds what we are offering as free packaging and shipping. Tracking is also sometimes unreliable but our packages have always landed safely. ​Border fees, duties, and handling fees might apply.

When ordering prints: I have my art custom-scanned with the highest resolution possible to capture every stroke and texture of the original pastel. For most of my prints, my publisher, American Moulding, offers a variety of options shown below. I also offer Custom Prints which are made locally and hand-signed and shipped from my studio.

 

Paper Prints and Matted Prints are printed on substantial 180g Archival Matte paper. They are wrapped in clear protective packaging in a flat mailer.

Regarding Matted Prints: The size of the matted print indicates the outside edge of the mat dimensions. An 11" x 14" matted print fits in a frame with an 11" x 14" opening. Depending upon the artwork dimensions, mats are approx 1 1/2" - 2" wide

 

 

Premium Fine Art Prints are printed on luscious 310g Sunset Textured Watercolor paper. They are shipped rolled in a sturdy tube. This allows the larger size to ship economically and damage-free.

Canvas Prints are finished with a mirror image of the art around the edge and mounted on 1.5” inch stretcher bars. They include a wire for hanging and are shipped in a sturdy cardboard crate

Please Note:  Some of my artwork is different in ratio than standardized sizes. They work best with custom framing by your local frame shop. For more affordable framing, consider the Matted Prints which allow any size of art to become a standard-sized dimension to allow ease of selecting a store-bought frame. 

Due to supply chain issues, our current turnaround times are as follows:

Paper Prints: 1 to 2 weeks

Matted Prints: 3 to 4 weeks
