A barn owl crosses into the spirit world through a portal in the oldest tree in the forest.
Owls are some of the most powerful psychopomps, beings able to bridge the border between our world and the next, guiding spirits to the afterlife, and perhaps brave travelers seeking worlds beyond even that.
I hope to continue to make my paintings available as high quality Giclee prints. Printing them in batches keeps them affordable, but it's not something I can do on my own.
These archival prints feature beautifully crisp details and vibrant colors on a lightly textured velvet surface, very closely mimicking the look and feel of original watercolor paintings. They are made with professional quality, archival inks on acid free 100% cotton rag paper with a PH buffered base to ensure a beautiful long lasting image.
I am offering 11"x14" limited edition giclee prints this time around, as I feel this format does the piece the most justice. Giclee prints are printed on 12"x16" paper for ease of matting and framing. These prints will be priced at $45 each after the Kickstarter ends.
8"x10" limited edition archival lustre prints are also available.
"Oasis King" has been unlocked as a print option for both the 8"x10" lustre and 11"x14" Giclee print tiers!
Apologies for the poor photos, I will get a high quality scan when this is completed. It looks amazing in person!
New Rewards (as of 4/19)!
"Royalty" 11"x14" limited edition lustre print, and optional add on: "Talking Flowers" 4"x4" limited edition giclee print!
I am also offering limited edition 5"x7" lustre prints of my new painting "Epiphyllum" as a smaller reward tier. These prints are included in all 11"x14" print reward tiers for free, as an extra thank you for making this project possible <3
My 4"x6" Kickstarter exclusive, limited edition metallic print "Astral Drift" is also included in some of the reward tiers. This print will only be available through Kickstarter projects like this, until the edition of 100 is sold out.
If your reward tier includes a print of "Astral Drift" and you already have a copy, you can substitute any print measuring 5"x7" or smaller from my shop <3
I have a few ACEO keyword commissions up for grabs as well. Just give me a word or two or any vague idea to interpret, and I will create a little 2.5" x 3.5" watercolor/multimedia painting for you!
Print Edition Information
8"x10" Lustre prints of "Spirit Portal" are limited to 200, other print edition sizes will be set once this Kickstarter is concluded. These pieces will not be reprinted once the editions are out, outside of possibly being used for small crafts like photo jewelry, or cropped down for bookmarks.
Copyright watermark will of course not be present on any prints. Due to variances in computer monitor displays, print color and contrast may be different from what you see on your screen.
In an effort to keep things simple, I will be limiting add ons for this project. If there is something in my shop you'd really like to add to your pledge, however, just contact me and we can work it out :)

Risks and challenges
This is a small, fairly simple project. I have reviewed test prints and made multiple orders through the print company I will be working with, and have always been very happy with the print quality and turnover time, so I expect no complications on that front.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
