THE STORY OF "THE SPIRIT DANCES":
She is a wise and old woman, alone in her body. She is ill and her life has been lived. When she was young, she had dreams of a life ahead, full and rich with laughter and singing. She lies now, alone and still. She drifts off into her slumber and she finds that she is young again. Young forever. ...Now, she dances.
She knows that her body is weak, but her spirit is not. She still has a life to live and a song to dance to. All of life, around her and throughout her, is a beautiful rhythm that connects all things living. She sees it, she feels it, she becomes it. She is no longer alone. She is no longer ill. She is no longer quiet, and no longer still. She is the wise, young spirit, free in her body. She has forgotten her pain, and found her rhythm once again. She knows that her suffering has led her into a life of strength, bravery, love and music forever. ...Now, she dances.
This painting is about hope. Even when we are tired and we are ill, there is always a spirit among our hurting bodies. Suffering brings wisdom, and patience brings strength. When you are scared and lonely, remember that in spirit, there is always a living rhythm that sings of hope. When we listen for the music among the quiet suffering, finally... the spirit dances.

PAPER, SIZE & CUSTOM MATTING:
MATTED PRINTS - 8x10, 11x14 or 16x20: 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: This beautiful 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: The image is carefully cropped to be as close to the original proportions as possible. It is difficult to give exact image sizes due to the fact that we do not crop out portions for printing.
STAGE 3: 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. You can easily and seamlessly fit this into any standard frame. Just choose the size you would like to order, and we will fit the image at an ideal proportion.
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. Each art print will be hand signed by Dr Franky Dolan himself.

ABOUT THE ARTIST, DR FRANKY DOLAN:
All of this art is the culmination of a man who became bedridden and housebound for many years. Hours upon hours were spent alone and painfully ill, leaving the mind with only one option for survival. Franky went into a daily monk-like meditation, every single day for years. Overwhelming visions and messages were so strong, he could barely contain them in his body. So his partner, Randy, brought him paints and clay one day, and said, "create your visions."
With no formal art training, Franky looked down at his hands, and began to sculpt and paint these psychic impressions, all from his bed or even on the floor. From this, they started FaeFactory.com, and use the sales of the various art creations to support treatment, outreach and advocacy. This art is more than just art; to Randy Ordonio and Dr Franky Dolan, it is life. â€_Thank you for your support, and please, join the mission!
