    A Chorus Life

    This piece is near and dear to my heart. This came out of me at my most vulnerable point. I decided to take a week long art class with an artist who I greatly look up to, Alex Grey, and we were supposed to just relax and free-form create anything. I was so intimidated at this point that I grabbed my watercolors and just started throwing it on the paper. The whole time I was thinking about how unworthy I was to be in this class with all these talented people. I feared that the painting was going to turn out ugly and that I'd be exposed as a fraud. Then everything changed when I saw an elephant in all the watercolor splashes. I clung to this elephant and did everything I could to bring it to life but, like me, it still wanted to hide--because sometimes it's just safer that way. So my elephant still has bunny ears and flippers so it can be hidden from those that would hurt it. Courage in Cammo is created with watercolors and ink.

    Each giclee print is made on acid-free, archival matte paper. Depending on your framing needs, an image can be borderless or have a 1/2" white border. (For example, an 8" x 10" print has a 7.5" x 9.5" image with a 1/2" white border surrounding it on all sides.) Unless otherwise indicated, I will default to the 1/2" white border. Other sizes, borders, paper and canvas choices are available, just contact me to ask. To cut down on turn around time, the print will be shipped directly from the printer to you. For gifts, special messages can be included for $0.75. Typical turn around for PAPER orders is 1-3 business days. Typical turn around for CANVAS is 5-10 business days. Rush shipping is available at an extra cost. The printer will ship either in a round tube or flat. Please let me know immediately if you need it shipped flat. Just gently reverse the bend for a few minutes and the paper should lay flat. Since each print is being made elsewhere, signed prints are not available and other items from my store cannot be included in one package. Sadly, that means that you will have to checkout twice if you want to purchase any sewn or soapy goods. The "Jaime Hazard" watermark will not appear on your print.
