"Ascending" is a captivating and evocative painting that captures the essence of the soul's journey towards enlightenment. The canvas is dominated by a white, enigmatic human-shaped figure, representing the soul, as it gracefully ascends a staircase formed by ethereal white clouds. This figure exudes an air of mystery and otherworldly tranquility, as if it is a celestial being transcending the mundane realm.
The bright light at the top of the painting serves as a beacon, guiding the soul on its path towards enlightenment and a higher state of consciousness. The use of light in the composition creates a dramatic contrast with the surrounding elements, symbolizing the promise of spiritual transformation and the ultimate attainment of inner peace.
In the foreground, the clouds take on a darker, brown hue, suggesting the earthly nature of our existence and the challenges that we face in our mortal lives. The brown dripping from the top of the painting represents the heaviness of worldly attachments and desires, something the soul must overcome, as it ascends higher on its journey.
To the left near the top of the painting, brown clouds with some sort of structures in them can be seen, hinting at the remnants of human civilization and its impact on the soul's journey. These structures represent the obstacles and distractions that we encounter in life, as well as the weight of our collective history and the cultural baggage that we carry with us.
Overall, "Ascending" is a deeply thought-provoking and visually stunning painting that invites viewers to reflect on the nature of their own spiritual journey. The composition balances the ethereal beauty of the soul's ascension with the harsher realities of life, creating a striking and memorable visual experience.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
