Heartfelt

Heartfelt

My heart is as ancient as the sea.

To ride the waves, you must follow me.

I patiently wait for you to feel.

The depths of wisdom which I reveal.

 

In mind and body, heart and soul,

we are gifted with life and thus a role

in the unfolding quest of love and light.

Be still and trust your own insight.

 

~ Kim McElroy

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE ART

    This painting was commissioned by Joy Kimler for the cover of a book she has written titled “Heartfelt”.  She asked me to create a painting of a horse’s eye with a heart symbol somewhere in the composition.  While contemplating her project, I ran across a picture of this beautiful Friesian gelding I had photographed named Wouter, and I knew it wasn’t just a coincidence, that he was the one to model her vision of the heart of the horse.

     

    About the book “Heartfelt”:

    Canadian author, Joy Collier knows from experience that when you meet a horse person, it isn’t long before you are hearing a story about the horse they have now or a horse they used to have. Often the stories are told about the one horse that made an impression, the one that there was a special connection with. Joy realized that it is just such stories that you rarely get to hear from the elite of the horse world.  So she decided to write a book titled “Heartfelt”, a compilation of stories from Canadian equestrians, including Olympic riders and respected leaders in their fields.  Joy’s passion is to share these stories, knowing they will touch the hearts of her readers.  She commissioned Kim McElroy to put her special touch on the cover of this book with her painting “Heartfelt”.

​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.
