Gaze into my eyes.

In my regard

see yourself reflected.

You too, wear a shawl

bestowed by your experiences.

What you see in me is your own divinity.


~ Kim McElroy




    Melisande or “Mel” for short, was an Arabian mare dearly loved by her owner Sharon, who offered her a home in retirement after her many homes and many years spent as a show horse.  After Mel passed away, Sharon asked me to paint Mel’s spirit in an Essential Soul Essence Portrait.

    In meditation I saw an image of Mel and Sharon facing each other.  In between them was a bowl.  It seemed to be a ceremony of sharing the bowl – each sipping from it like in a tea ceremony.  The feeling of sharing the tea felt like the gesture of bowing to one another in the greeting Namasté. which is a gesture of placing the hands together and bowing in greeting to another. It can simply mean hello, but "in Hinduism it also has a spiritual import reflecting the belief that "the divine and self is same in you and me", and connotes "I bow to the divine in you".

    Other images evolved, the gong of ceremony, and the presence of a white dove.  Reflected in the tea in the bowl was written the characters for Namasté.  There was a purple shawl around Mel’s shoulders denoting her as a wise teacher – but humble. The message was everything Sharon might see in her, she also sees in Sharon.

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.
