Archival, Giclée reproduction of my watercolor illustrated quote of the Mexican proverb, "They tried to bury us; they didn't know we were seeds."

Vibrant blues, reds, orange and pink bring a vitality to this already powerful quote. I was inspired by the beautiful embroidery work found on traditional, Mexican dresses. I found this to be an empowering quote that gave me hope in making positive change, created to carry in the Seattle Women's March (or Womxn's March).

This artwork can be ordered in a variety of sizes and two finishes: A smooth, matte finish paper and a textured etching paper, that can make the print seem very much like an original watercolor painting. Please let me know if I am sold out of the size or finish you are looking for. It can typically be printed and ready to send within 3 business days.

Buying this print supports both my illustration business, as well as the family-owned shop in Seattle who does my prints.
Thank you for your support!

This is a fav! I have purchased it a few times. It is beautiful, powerful and most of all, has a universal message for underdogs everywhere. I am always fascinated by Misha's work. She is an important artist to watch.

This is a beautiful print. The colors are vivid and I'm excited to add it to my office. The print arrived in good condition, and shipping was fast. One thing to note is that the tracker indicated the item was delivered two days before it arrived, but that was a USPS issue.
