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
ONAQUI MOUNTAINS, UTAH, 2017
Amongst the tranquil meadows where the grasses gently blow in so breezes underneath an endless blue sky, lies this scene. One that captivated my heart.
Sleeping horses have forever soothed my soul, there is something quite special when any horse will remain lying down in one’s presence, when a wild one does it is truly an honor. On a small rise, not far away stood her stallion, who tended to lean an ear my direction from time to time, but also too chose to be restful with my presence. I was on the range alone, sitting in such splendor as not far off behind me was another band with many of them lying in the same comforting grasses.
To sit quietly with such a massive creatures as they let their guards down was a healing like no other. Watching her belly inhale and exhale slowly and deeply had such a profound impact on my own breath.
There is an undeniable rhythm to wildness and in the presence of such peace you can feel your anxieties blow away in the winds around you. The entire scene was a portal into the vast wild world of such astounding beauty, such resonance with the force of life and our magnificent Western landscapes.
My gratitude is infinite for these long days out amongst the herds. Smelling the sweetness of the earth, hearing the meadowlarks songs and feeling the warmth of wildness embrace your skin.
Sometimes you have to close your eyes to see your soul.
