"Crystal Soul #1" Canvas Hand Embellished Matted Painting-Print by Dr Franky Dolan
THE STORY OF "CRYSTAL SOUL": (This is CRYSTAL SOUL #1, part of a triptych series.)
The crystal is a jewel given to the earth. This natural little gift is pressed to immeasurable degrees. Once it comes up to the light, it actually absorbs rainbows, and releases them for the world to see. A great and powerful miracle that comes from the gift of life. This is what happens to us all when we suffer and survive with grace; when we are youthful but wise elders; when our hearts are broken and we still have love.
A Crystal Soul is a magnanimous thing. It is that which becomes of those who rise to the light and shine their colors, despite being pressed beyond measure. No more crying my sweet friends. All who are weary and pure, are worthy of loving. Close your eyes and absorb the rainbows of your life. Then open those windows to your soul, and share your beautiful colors with the world. You are unique and alive. You. You. You are a rare jewel and the dark corners of the world need your shine. You are alive, so live. Be your greatest self, and you too will become a Crystal Soul.

THE CUSTOM MATTED, HAND EMBELLISHMENT PROCESS:
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!
INCLUDES: 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!
