Emotional Realism — what is it? Ocean Breeze epitomizes this term by its strong color, warm tones, sense of freedom and joy. One can hear the surf and feel the breeze as a young woman lifts her arms to the setting sun of the Pacific Ocean. Or, are we on the opposite coast of North America, and she greets the rising sun of a new day?
Ocean Breeze is available in the following ways:
Fine art makes fine gifts.
Fine is a fine gift for mom, and Bold Innocence is a reminder of the beauty and grace of children. No matter how old those children get, in a mother’s heart, there is a memory of that small, bold, innocent person. And while that irritates us as we’re growing up and growing away, it’s a comfort as well, knowing that Mom remembers a part of us that we could too easily forget.
Bold Innocence — the original painting — is sold. The image is available as a signed, limited edition print through Steve Henderson Fine Art, as well as an inspirational poster.
Bold Innocence is also available as an open edition print through Great Big Canvas.
Inspirational posters by Steve Henderson Fine Art
More so than our daily bread, we all need grace to get through the day.
And just what is grace? Tolerance for our failings, understanding for our weaknesses, a hand held out to help us up when we fall. As we all need it, so we can give it to others.
Grace poster, available at Steve Henderson Fine Art, with or without the inspirational saying.
If you like the image but want a different saying, we can do that. Just follow the link on the image to the Steve Henderson Fine Art site.
When things go wrong, generally the first thing we do is get mad. Now getting mad isn’t such a bad thing — the energy derived from it impels us to make changes and move forward, but if we stay in the angry state, we lose the very movement that got us going in the first place.
And sometimes, there’s no set person or establishment to get mad at — and we find ourselves being angry all the time.
So, why not laugh? Laugh at Life’s Challenges talks about this more in depth, and I invite you to visit another site of mine, This Woman Writes.
The Laugh at Life’s Challenges inspirational poster is available at Steve Henderson Fine Art — for $10.95 you can start an art collection. Each poster is available with the saying, without the saying, or, if you purchase 5 or more of the same image by contacting us to customize the order, you can add your own saying and pass around your wisdom to four other people.
She’s small, she’s brave, she doesn’t fully comprehend how big the world is, but maybe that’s not a bad thing. If we truly understood how difficult things could be, would we continue? If even, like Frodo in The Lord of the Rings movie, we could look into a magic pool of water and see what might, or might not be, would we choose to do so?
Bold Innocence captures the confidence and insecurity in all of us. The lesson we can grasp from little children is that, while they fully recognize that they are small and weak and helpless, this never stops them from thinking that they can do anything.
Bold Innocence is available through Steve Henderson Fine Art as a signed limited edition print, both in paper and as gallery wrapped canvas (no frame needed; it’s ready to hang on your wall straight out of the shipment box). Shipping is free, and 6 months interest-free financing is available through PayPal’s Bill Me Later program. Contact Us, and we’ll walk you through the purchase process.
Children are so small and easily overlooked — maybe that’s why they’re extra noisy.
As we set up our list of New Year’s Resolutions that we know we’re going to break within the next three months (or weeks, maybe days), why not come up with one that is worth keeping, and realistically able to be kept:
Stop. Look down. Listen. Smile. Hold out your hand to the small person in your life and walk together, talking about important things, like The Story of Peter Rabbit and Goodnight Moon.

When life becomes overwhelmingly complex and complicated — after a national election, say — then it’s time to focus on the small, simple things of life, because these are the ones that ultimately matter.
A child’s laugh, the feeling of her arms entwined around your neck as she snuggles as close as she physically can, a good story, companionship, the kiss of the breeze on your cheek — these small, eternal things are what make life worth waking up to each morning.
Seaside Story, which embodies this sense of peace and well being, is now available as a signed, limited edition print through Steve Henderson Fine Art.

Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity, and is available in a variety of sizes and prices, framed and unframed.

And where is this place? The river is the great Columbia — the great natural highway to the Pacific Ocean — that borders between Oregon and Washington in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. The peaceful, sleepy town in the background is White Salmon, the day overcast yet still warm, the season autumn, and the feeling one of quiet contemplation on a weekend afternoon that belongs to you, just you, with no obligations, deadlines, unsolicited phone calls, or overflowing in-box, whether it’s on your desk or desktop.
Peace. Quiet. Space. Contentment.
