"Like A Raven" Canvas Hand Embellished Matted Painting-Print by Dr Franky Dolan
THE STORY OF "LIKE A RAVEN": Like a raven in the night, he is unseen by a simple glance. Cloaked in a robe made of sparkly feathers, he is concealed among the stars. With a twinkling flash of lightning, he appears. An electric surge illuminates his face, from under the feathered hood. He is an angel, among the many, who guard the skies for our protection. His entrancing eyes convey powerful whispers of love and grace. He is with us, he has arrived. Like A Raven.
This painting came to me in a flash, his presence was here beside me as I created this. I have felt him in my times of needing a warrior; when I was scared and unable to defend against life's seemingly insurmountable challenges. I created this image using various types of paints and mediums, layer upon layer, upon layer, as complex as our emotions, and as alive as our own spirits. An angel can be many different things, depending on our perspectives and beliefs, they come in all colors and shapes. For me, this is how I experience the angels in my life, and this is how I show the world that they exist.

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!
