"I Will Carry You" Matted Print by Dr Franky Dolan

A night when I was so ill, I could not see the stars from my bed, I felt a large presence come into my room. He spoke, though he looked almost animal. He was in fact an elephant, in abstract form. I was weary and could not sit up. With his big trunk, he hugged my torso and swooped me up onto his back. I melted into his beautiful skin. He said to me, "I will carry you."

"But Elephant, I am too heavy, and I am too sick," I spoke quietly. "I will carry you," he kept saying so proudly. I rode on his back, and he brought me into my dreams. All the nightmares I had been having were too frightened now to come upon me, for they were no match for this beautifully bright elephant.

He carried me to my past. The terrible memories of loss and being bullied were all too afraid to come near us, for the elephant was mighty and bold against the pain of my past.

Then we went toward the future. "But Elephant!" I protested through my weakness. "I may not make it to my future, I am afraid to see what will become of me." For the first time, since hoisting me onto his back, he stopped.

I felt alone and afraid of my fate, for I was too sick to think that I would be well enough to walk into my future. What will I do, though? What will I do if I see what I do not want to see? What will happen to me if I fall and I die? What will happen to me then? Once more, the wise elephant said to me, "I will carry you."

As we bravely stepped into my future, I felt my strength coming back to me. There I saw the battles of life, I saw the triumphs and the tumbles. I saw age upon my hands and on my face. I began to look like the elephant, with long deep wrinkles and colors so bright. Looking down at my hands and feet, I felt mighty once more.

I see myself, I know myself, I feel myself. Now, I can carry myself.

Sending Love,

Dr Franky Dolan

MATTED PRINTS: Small, medium, large sizes indicate the outer measurements of the mat boards. The images fit at a proportionate ratio, slightly smaller than the mat board. This allows for keeping the full painting image, along with the stories and meditations; easily fitting into standard frame sizes.

STAGE 1: Every beautiful Dr Franky Dolan painting is reproduced onto a premium fine art paper; the same paper that museum and gallery paintings are commonly printed on. The paper is very strong with velvety-soft texture to the touch. The effect is so beautiful and rich. This is not just a simple giclee print on photo paper, the high-end paper and inks are far superior.

STAGE 2: We then make it much easier for you, and much more beautiful, by custom-fitting an extra-heavy bright white mat board. We fit the image between a beveled-border mat and a full back mat board. Again, you can easily and seamlessly fit these into any standard frames.

STAGE 3: Gift wrapping and all additional materials are beautiful presented and professionally packaged for shipping.

Note: Remember that every computer screen and every printer will interpret color slightly differently. That said, you can trust that Fae Factory prints are handled with highest quality and highest care, from start to finish.

The overall process of fine art printing, custom front and back matting, added meditation cards and signed legal certificate of authenticity as well as gift wrapping and professional fine art packaging, etc., will take approximately 1-2 weeks to complete; depending on season, size and details.
