Gentle, Mindful Mothering Paintings… inspired by You!

In actuality, I do not usually create my paintings from photos. I paint from sketches in my journal that have sprung from my heart and from inspiration around me. When I do have photos for inspiration (for custom commissioned paintings) I look at the photos for a bit, set them aside, and see what blossoms. I have no intentions or desires for photo-likeness, just for a heart-felt representation of closeness and affection.

Submit your Photo(s) of Gentle, Mindful Mothering ~ for you, does mindful mothering mean breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby-wearing, kissing? Walking together, talking together, reading together, laughing together, cooking together, crying together, playing together…?

*this is an ongoing project, there is no deadline!

~~~~~

If You’d Like to Submit, Do This:

1) Email your photo to Katie@kmberggren.com

2) By submitting, you agree that by sending me a photo or photos, you allow me to be inspired by your image, and you agree that the design and copyright of the painting in its process and finished forms remains with the artist (that’s me!). But you can certainly brag to your friends by sending them over to the Facebook Page to watch the process & feel free to “share” the postings onto your FB pages, as well!

3) By submitting, you agree that if your photo is chosen, you will be honored as I delight in sharing your lovely photo (and your first name) on Facebook, Instagram, and my blog, as well as revealing process images as your photo inspires a painting…

4) When the painting is complete, it will be released to the public, and you are certainly welcome to claim the piece, at anytime during the process. You will receive a free 12×12″ print of the painting inspired by your photo. However, should you decide the original painting is for you, please let me know as soon as you can (paintings are sold on a First Come First Served basis) and you will have the option to choose a different free 12×12″ print. There is absolutely no pressure and no obligation for you to purchase the original painting inspired by your photo!

Contact me if you are interested or have any questions, but this is important: if I do not respond to your email, that means I did NOT receive your note of interest. Please send again.

This is ALSO important: I promise promise promise to tell you if I choose your photo ~ I will never use your photo then pretend I didn’t. If you see a painting emerging that is similar to your photo, it might just be a coincidence ~ if I choose your photo, I promise to tell you and give you the free print at the end ~ don’t worry!
