Stanley's Essence

Stanley's Essence

Swim with me through the realms of your imagination

Where the depths and layers of thought and feeling reside

There is no separation between the tangible and the intangible

We are all connected in the fluid and mutable moment

Where new and surprising connections can arise

Like bubbles coming to the surface of consciousness

 

~ Kim McElroy

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE ART

    This is a Tangible Soul Essence portrait of a horse named Stanley. Stanley was a lovely gelding who retired with my friend Leta, who is a healing practitioner. Remedies she created to help Stanley led to the creation of remedies that helped other horses, so his healing rippled out to heal others. When I meditated with Stanley’s spirit, the image of an otter came to me. Otters have a zest for life and are connected to water which represents the subconscious and the emotions. I envisioned the otter swimming in the water, which was flowing around and through Stanley’s spirit. Later I learned that Stanley’s first owner lived on an island, so he was familiar with being surrounded by water.

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
