Description

This is a print of my original watercolor and gouache painting of a humpback whale and a girl making a connection between barriers of land and sea. Whales play such a huge role in our oceans ecology and sometimes we forget that such large magnificent creatures share this planet with us. Whales truly are the heart of the sea ♥

The only reason why it's not a 5 star review was because of shipping issues but other than that everything was great.

FAQs

All of my prints are archive quality 150 years or more, but to maintain this it is best to mat and frame your new art piece and place it out of direct sun.
If you don't plan to display it right away, placing it in some type of dark storage is best.
Invoices are not included in the package itself in order to save paper, while one is emailed to the buyer. If you would like a paper copy of your invoice please let me know in the 'notes to seller' section at the time of purchase
I do take custom artwork orders at times, it all depends on availability - contact me!
I don't make custom changes to art prints though, so I can't change the gender of a character, hair color, or any coloring of the prints - sorry!
I have a mailing list going for monthly updates, just message me with your email address and I'll add you to the list.

All of my art prints are shipped as secure as possible!

Prints 8x10 or smaller are shipped in a clear protective sleeve, and tucked in a flat, rigid mailer and sent via first class mail, and first class international mail. I usually get prints printed and packed within 3-5 days and shipping takes 3-5 days within the U.S. and up to 2 weeks to Canada, Europe and Australia.

Larger prints, 11x14 and larger, will be rolled between acid-free tissue paper and tucked into a rigid mailing tube for extra protection. Large prints can take 3-5 days to prep for shipping. Shipping time is the same for mailing tubes as the flat envelopes above.
