Because prints are very fragile, they shouldn't be stored in the tube for extended periods of time. Make sure to open the package within 24-48 hrs of receiving it and take it to a professional framer as soon as possible for opening and archival dry mounting. Handling your large print yourself could result in wrinkles or tears. In the unlikely event of damage, please see policy HERE.
FRAMING: It is not uncommon for prints to have a strong curl to them when first unrolled. Discuss with your professional framer about dry-mounting your print, using archival materials only, to ensure it will remain flat once framed.
PLACEMENT: All artworks should not be placed in direct sunlight to avoid any fading over time.
ABOUT THE PIECE
Salt Wells, Wyoming
The bond between mare and foal is nothing short of fierce. Witnessing such a strong connection across all the different and varying landscapes is watching Mother Nature in her finest form.
Out, amidst a vast area of land, and a sprawling herd of varying bands, mares and foals can get separated in an instant, due to the never ending curiosity and playful wanderings of these young ones. A mare will suddenly li her head with laser focus and determination, emitting a call with a strong resonance, the very call of the wild. Her foal, no matter how far has strayed will recognize that call and swily return to their mother’s side. Oentimes you will see the mare give a reprimanding nudge or a nip, in an effort to remind the youngster where they belong.
Likewise, a young foal can let out a panicked squeak or whinny from a distance they have traveled, serving as a distress signal. The mare will hear the young ones call of vulnerability and the two will find each other from hundreds of feet, and multiple horses away. This extraordinary connection, and communication is profound, rooted in thousands of years of navigating their wild world without the assistance from human interaction.
I am reminded to honor precious life bonds that unite us all, and to the never-ending, enduring beauty of our greater wild world.
