On a Wing and a Prayer

Layering expressive strokes of vivid watercolors, self-taught artist Sarah Janece Garcia turns a butterfly study into a celebration of delicacy and beauty. "Whispered Wishes" was inspired by a Native American nature allegory: for a wish to come true, you must first catch a butterfly and whisper your desire to the captive insect. Once released, to show gratitude for its freedom, the butterfly carries that wish to help ensure that it's granted. Through vibrant greens, blues, and magenta, Sarah captures the fleeting beauty of this tale and the beautiful creature at its heart. Image made in San Antonio, Texas; printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.

“My wish is for each painting to capture the freedom and vitality of nature in unexpected ways.”

Sarah Janece Garcia expresses her admiration for the natural world via heavily saturated watercolor paintings. Using a style that ranges from literal to abstract, Sarah's work is influenced by her passion for art in all forms, attraction to color, and adoration for nature's untamed splendor. "Nature's beauty enriches my soul and brings me comfort and happiness at the precise moment I need it," she says. "I feel very strongly that when I show love and respect for nature, nature always returns the favor."

Although I had to return this product once for creases in the back as well as through the print, I still gave it five stars. 5 stars because a new print was replaced quickly and without difficulty and, of course, 5 stars for the beauty of this print. This artist's work is noticed by everyone who sees it. Her watercolors "pop" and complete any room where they are placed.
