7-100 Faithful Heart - limited series, hand painted lino print
Joy's Faithful heart... when betrayal sneaks somehow into our world, what can we do but remember once again to prioritise self care and trust our green and beautiful heart.
Surrounded by love, with heart vines, a heart border, and wearing her heart dress while holding her heart, Joy is gently putting heart and love first.
The blue neck, purple head and green heart coincide with chakra colours. The four skin tones on the four original prints (AP1-AP4) are an optimistic gesture to reach around the world and be as inclusive as possible.
How do you interpret her? What do you see in this picture? (Let's chat some time, for the original meaning I have but alluded to, here).
This is a wonderful print to keep you company in a frequently visited room... say, a bedroom or a kitchen, or even an office. A simple, bright reminder to care for yourself, listen to your heart.
This is a small, limited series (not technically an edition) totalling 4 hand coloured AP (Artist Proof) prints only. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that just 3 other people on the entire planet will have, this is for you!
I make limited edition lino prints by first carving a design into a piece of linoleum, then rolling the lino with ink, and then pressing this onto paper. Once I’ve created the lines, I do all my colouring with Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours. When creating my original art, I use Archival quality watercolour paper, usually 100% cotton Arches paper from France.
The dimensions of this image are about 30.5cm x 15cm (approx 12" x 6"), and there is ample paper around that for mounting and framing. Good framing adds around 10 - 12cm (5") on all sides, more at the bottom.
I recommend ordering Unframed if it's coming to you via the postal service/s - this saves us both money on postage, and gives you the chance to support a local framing artisan, too. [Dubious that you can manage framing locally? Download my new art collectors introduction to the basics.] If you meet me at a market stall to pick up, I can arrange professional framing for you in about 2-3 weeks.
Let me know if you're interested in this picture as a giclee print in the future and I'll consider making it available. Love Meg x o
