"Mourning" Canvas Hand Embellished Painting-Print by Dr Franky Dolan



A woman has lost her babies. They left her to be with the angels in the sky. The woman is overwrought by grief and a loneliness that can only be described as hell inside her body. She traveled to the mountains to be closer to heaven, in hopes that her babies can hear her when she cries for them. Climbing on rocks, pulling on grasses and hoisting herself to the highest peak, she has made it to what she believes to be the top of the world. Can she reach her children? Can she find them again? She looks down to her arms and sees that they are empty. So she sings to them, hoping that she has traveled close enough for them to hear her.

What she does not realize is that as she sings to them, she is not alone. They are with her, and they have brought her a set of wings. They do not want her to have to climb so far anymore. She has loved them so deeply and given so generously to the world, as mothers often do, that she has earned her wings. She cannot see them, but when she feels that aching need to be with her loved ones who have passed, she can fly with her soul, and meet them beyond the sky. What gives flight to an angel’s wings? Love does. Pure love.

As we pray, we can pray to our loved ones who have crossed over that bridge from the highest mountaintop to the heavens. Many lives, many cycles, we come back to each other. And by loving someone, you are giving to them. In return, they give back to you. This does not end when the body lies down away from the soul. Love is eternal, and will give flight to our wings. Know this: loss does not mean lost, and when you search for those you love, they will always be found.

Sending Love,

Dr Franky Dolan


MATTED 8x10, 11x14, 16x20 or 18x24: Sizes indicate the outer measurements of the mat board. The images fit at a proportionate ratio, slightly smaller than the mat board. This allows for keeping the full painting image, as opposed to cropping out part of the image to fit into standard frames.

*STAGE 1: An authentic cloth canvas print is created from an original Dr Franky Dolan painting.

*STAGE 2: The canvas print is lightly painted over, and hand embellished with extra focus in random spots, by Dr Dolan himself. The same paints as the first original painting, are used to embellish the canvas print.

*STAGE 3: We then make it much easier for you, and much more beautiful, by custom-fitting an extra-heavy bright white mat board, measuring 8x10, 11x14, 16x20 or 18x24, depending on the size that you order. We fit the image between a beveled-border mat and a full back mat board.

TIME: The overall process takes approximately 1-2 weeks to complete. If you are needing a fast turn-around, we will do whatever we can to accommodate your needs.

SHIPPING: We then skillfully wrap and professionally pack each painting, adding bonus cards with the story of your image, and information about the cause that your purchase supports. Upgraded Priority shipping is included as well for extra care and speedy delivery! -Free shipping on additional items placed in the same order!

DETAILS: A real canvas print, hand embellished and signed by the artist, along with highest quality custom-fit front and back matting, is normally incredibly expensive. We do it all in-house ourselves. The end result creates a whole new uniquely original art piece, ever so slightly different than the first original. You will receive the only one of its kind in the world! The final masterpiece painting includes a legal *certificate of authenticity* and an original signature painted on by Dr Franky Dolan himself!
