THE STORY OF "HAZEL, RECONNECTED":
After a traumatic past, she became depersonalized and dissociated from herself. She was lost amidst a chaos of emotions. Her thoughts and sensations felt as if they were not hers, and she had a storm to walk through. Finally, she began stepping ahead of the trauma. Instead of ending up somewhere new, she stepped into the place where she belonged all along: within herself.
Her colors reflect the lessons she gathered along her hero's journey. She had to find herself among an ever-changing sense of self. Like the eyes of a chameleon, she will survive among any hue of life. She is Hazel, and she is connected.
If you know someone who lives with Depersonalization, or any other traumatic ailment, hold them and embrace them. They are sensitive beyond words, and therefore, indescribably beautiful. This painting represents the ever-changing color in us all.

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!
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!
