⟐ “accept, then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it”— eckhart tolle
You can find the wise words of Eckhart tolle written all over my home. on post-it notes on my mirrors. on the back of paintbrushes. taped to the front of my exposure therapy journal - the journey to acceptance of anything life throws your way is an endless voyage that will come with harsh dangerous waves + beautiful sunsets.
I used to think acceptance was this magical key to one day become completely detached from emotion during situations that challenge fear and insecurities that all humans share-
to me, acceptance is allowing yourself to experience pain, joy, confusion, rejection, and injustices in our world- giving yourself permission to grieve, feel, and crumble. then notice and name the expectations you made. to recognize power in progress.
I dream of achieving such a state of mindfulness to try to live in unconditional acceptance. this year, witnessing myself shift from continuously creating unreasonable expectations for myself to celebrating small wins when letting go comes naturally to me— is the closest I’ve ever felt to feeling the true power of connecting to consciousness.
To pinpoint when you felt out of control, and the actions you take to regain that control make you see your behaviors in a whole new light.
Being unable to accept my weaknesses without self-hatred is deterring me from unconditionally loving myself/and others.
“Apathy paralyzes the will to action; acceptance frees it by relieving it of impossible burdens” — Arthur Gordon Webster.
The hanging gear installed to each piece differs by weight, size, and frame type. We install the best quality gear for each work, and quality check by installing the art on our studio walls.
If the painting you are purchasing is going to be hung on a surface that needs a particular type of gear, please reach out so we can make that happen for you.
Our shipping rates are pre-set and determined by size & weight.
Our art is professionally wrapped and shipped by our local fine art shipper who has decades of experience working with fine art and sculpture. *Hi Mike*
Having a reliable source to keep tabs on our art while in transit is simply the best.
We ship every painting ground (unless upgraded to 3-day air) - UPS ground shipping typically takes 3-7 business days.
The paintings in this collection are "ready to ship" meaning once we receive your order, we will start our secure packing process.
We can typically wrap the painting ready to ship within 1-3 business days!
Our frames are uniquely crafted to complement and complete each individual piece, tying the entire vision together. Some works have pre-planned frames that we use as a focal point, and inspiration.
We have worked with clients who love a piece but need a frame with a different stain. Please reach out if the frame does not work with the space you are planning to fill, we are more than happy to work together to ensure the best fit possible. May it be a new frame, or change of stain.
from inquiry to delivery and everything in between, our goal is to cultivate and nurture a personal, and stress-free experience while working with us.
please reach out if you are interested in learning more about a piece, or to set up a complimentary virtual consultation where we can navigate what would work best in your space by creating a custom rendering. all you'll need is a few photos of the wall/ living area you are desiring art, and we will do the rest.
thank you for choosing to support emerging artists x
