    Exquisite print. I purchased this for my daughter on the occasion of her baptism. I hope to find a frame that perfectly complements the beauty and spirit captured therein. I really love it. Thank you so much!

    Shadra's art is beautiful! I bought Bird's Sax along with Jump Rope and am so so so pleased. What's more, both pieces arrived as expected and in a timely fashion. Can't wait to hang them up!
