Paper Prints Are Drop Shipped for $7 and have been priced lower to reflect the cost of not having board mounting & sleeve that you would find if you were purchasing from me or in a retail location. Those materials are not exactly environmentally friendly, and primarily used to protect the print. In this case, you do not need those things, but you *can* order them at an added cost if you need to.
Story: "Bloom" is a piece I was working on around 2012-2013 while integrating lessons around sexuality & creativity. Undoing the ganglion of neurons that have creeped in to teach us that our bodies are bad, our sexuality wrong, or any other thing that would imply that it were unnatural. It's one of the most natural aspects of our humanity that there is, and yet we fear it and know very little about it. I feel this to be very disempowering, because our sexual energy is one of the most healing gifts we have... in the right context of course. It is creative energy, and I feel that the repression of it is also the repression of who we are. This repression, I hypothesize, could be related to much of the destructive acts we see in the world today. Maybe? More orgasms, less war? Could the vagina ward off evil? I think so.
I cannot drop ship to Alaska or Hawaii! But, I can ship it to myself, and then send it to you via UPS - there will just be a delay in the shipping, and shipping will cost an extra $7 ($14 total).
