So dear to my heart is this work. A painting fro my daughter Madeleine, such an inspiration is she. As mother, this work is about what I wish most for her, our youngest daughter, in her crossing the threshold into adolescence. May nature be her guide and an awareness of a spiritualized Earth at her fingertips and at each step she takes. May her great wise strength be at peace with her softness and feminine qualities. May her compassionate heart be surrounded always by loving support. Original work painted on Maple wood. Printed on cotton rag, archival and limited edition of 200. measures 6 1/2 inches and can be matted or not.
