Embrace the Night

Embrace the Night

My wish for this night

May the world be put right

May all become calm

As we look to the light

By the moon’s smiling face

We vow life to embrace

And with wisdom and love

Hope will come from above


~ Kim McElroy

From Emma’s spirit


    Audrey described Rocky as an invaluable and stalwart companion in a time of emotional upheaval in her life.  He provided her with much needed stability and unconditional love.  Losing him had been a very difficult time for her, but his health issues inspired her to become a barefoot hoof trimmer and to learn more about horse nutrition and healing.  Rocky’s gift to her continues to give back to all the horses she helps.

    When I did a meditation with Rocky for his portrait, his image appeared to me blended with moonlit clouds and an ancient cedar tree.  These images stayed with me as I looked again at his photograph, and I noticed for the first time a cedar tree behind him.  I asked Audrey about the tree and she said the picture was taken in Rocky’s paddock at her parent’s property, and that she had always felt the tree had a magical presence.  She said some of her most special times with Rocky had been when she would go out in the night an embrace his warm neck and express all the feelings she had inside her.  I felt this was the core of the message conveyed in the images I saw.

    It always amazes me when I can connect with the spirit of a beloved horse and receive insights that express the depth of the mutual love between a horse and their person.  These images infused my art with the mystery of that ongoing connection and with the gentle spirit that I saw in Rocky’s eyes.


    Audrey’s Comments: Kim has an innate ability to bring the horses in her portraits to life. In my portrait of Rocky, Embrace The Night, it feels as though I could reach out and stroke his neck or that he may just reach out and nuzzle me! It’s like I have Rocky home with me again. I am so grateful to Kim and her wonderful gift. She is so in tune to the horses’ energy and it’s conveyed in all the portraits she creates.

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
