Lakota's Reflection

Lakota's Reflection

My eyes are the mirrors of my soul,

From the darkness, the light of my spirit was awakened

My eyes reflected the world around me

A world that I did not always want to see

My eyes shine clear and bright

Now that I am surrounded by love

My eyes see my own true self

Emerging…

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE ART

    Lakota is a beautiful Palomino Paint horse. His owner, Mike, rescued him. When Mike tracked down all of his previous owners he realized that Lakota had an unhappy life with some of them. Mike felt it was important to give something back to Lakota to honor his true self, so he managed to obtain his registration as a Palomino Paint with the APHA. When Mike found Lakota’s breeder, who had loved him, she said he had come into the world kicking, so she had picked the Native American name for him of Lakota. Little did she know he would need that strength to survive. Mike and his wife were fans of my art and Mike particularly liked my series of reflections in horse’s eyes, so he asked me to paint Lakota's image in his eye, to pay tribute to the dream that Mike had, that came true; of Lakota coming home to himself.

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
