This hand-carved block print over watercolor is based on my painting ‘Growth’.
From the original painting’s description: I feel like a lot of times, personal development isn’t really visible to those around us until we emerge somehow different. Like the caterpillar who emerges from their chrysalis as a butterfly, we outgrow our old boundaries, become more beautiful, and increase in strength.
Sometimes people won’t understand why we have to change, and that is okay. Sometimes no one else will see the struggle that happens within, or what exactly it took for you to get to where you are now, and that is also okay.
You do not owe anyone an explanation. You are beautiful.
These block prints represent a reminder to honor your own personal growth, beauty, and accomplishments. Whether you have grown up, grown out of old boundaries, moved on from toxic relationships, grown into who you’ve always wanted to, met your goals, attained your dreams….or are in the process of doing any of these amazing things, this chrysalis is a reminder of your progress. You can chose specific colors, or choose from existing prints I have made, so that your unique print will coordinate with your decor.
Each and every one of these 5×7″ block prints are one of a kind, completely handmade using watercolor and water-based block-printing ink. Some include varying tones of metallic gold pigments, which I hope to be adding to very soon!
Each piece is made, packaged, and shipped with care, and can usually be expected to ship within a few days of purchase.
These handmade block prints are made to order, so processing time may take up to a week prior to shipping, but typically only takes 2-3 business days.
