Prints: All prints are made on an archival, fine art matte, giclée paper with a high-quality fine art finish which helps keep the artwork untarnished from sun rays and time decay. The image goes to the edge of the paper unless otherwise requested with customer service.
Canvases: All canvases come stretched, gallery wrapped, on a .75 inch width frame and are ready to hang on the wall. The art will be mirror wrapped to preserve the front perspective of the piece. Please contact our customer service team if you would like to request a rolled canvas instead of a stretched canvas.
A message from Brooklyn:
Everyone talks about missions like it is the best time of your life. Mine was not that way. I served in Russia. You can pray to love someone all you want, but when people are mean it is hard to love them.
The last two months of my mission I got very sick and I ended up having to share a hospital room with 6 other Russian women. I’m a huge baby and I love my privacy so I started to cry. The lady next to me turned over in her bed and looked at me. She frowned and said, “oh no.... don’t cry. It will be okay.” It was one of the nicest things any Russian had ever said to me, and I loved her instantly.
On the second day a nurse came in and needed to give me a shot (in the rear mind you) and I have a mad phobia of needles. After I got the shot in The bum everyone in the room cheered for me. I hadn’t felt so loved in a long time.
Being in the hospital ended up being my most cherished memory on my mission. I knew from that point on that I could love those people. If you can’t find the Light, The Light will find you.
