In order to ship Come To Me to Russia, she had to be removed from her wooden stretcher bars so that she could be rolled and safely shipped via express mail.
In general, I sign my paintings on the left side of the stretcher bar, on the back. In this case, I autographed, titled and dated the back of the canvas. So that when re-stretched in Russia, this painting would always bear my mark :)
The painting is rolled (image side out, to prevent cracking) and wrapped in cotton paper. To the right you see the free print that accompanies commissioned paintings.
Have a great week!
Love & Sincerely, Katie
