“Discovery” Poster, Plaque or Print

Photo Quote: Discovery

Photo Quote: Discovery

I took a little side trip into the woods today. The trees are suddenly nearly in full leaf and in today’s sunny warmth the path has the feel of a summer afternoon. I took a few photos, of course, but I have so many already, as well as paintings.

For Earth Day 2017 I designed a number of posters with photos or art and a few of my favorite quotes saved for such a project, remembering how I felt when I stood to look at my subject and matching a quote to that experience.

About this image

“Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints.” ~Chief Seattle

Though the provenance of this quote is disputed, it’s most often attributed to Chief Seattle and sounds similar to other sentiments known to be his. The actions taken leave room for discovery rather than conquest or possession, letting the place be what it is and enjoying it for its own nature. The poster is named for both the quote and for the photo, intentionally unfocused on my great niece and nephews as they explore wildflowers along the trail, waist deep in green things, ready to discover what the woods have to give.

I don’t have this photo listed in any photo galleries here but I always have a few prints of it when I’m at my trail exhibit and when I’m displaying nature art and photos.

Purchase a poster, plaque, framed print or canvas print

Photo Quote: Discovery posters are made in archival inks on Epson Matte Photo Paper, Cold Press Digital Giclee Paper or Artist Canvas.


Shipping within the US is included in all the prices listed. All shipping is via Priority Mail. Prints are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Canvases are shipped in a box to fit with padding. Since this original is small it is also shipped in a box with extra padding.


The photo is double matted with black core white acid-free mat and a solid wood matte black 25″ x 23″ frame and I’ve used a more square layout, but the image can also be more rectangular, and other styles are often available; check the thumbnails above to see what’s available now or ask about custom framing. Framed prints are signed on the photo and on the mat.

Other custom framing options are also available for a special quote. Please ask if you’d like another option.


Prints are made on acid-free matte photo paper using archival digital inks. I usually leave an inch or two of white around the print for easier frame fitting. All prints are countersigned by me.


I usually have at least one of the smaller sizes of canvases on hand, but order larger ones as they are ordered here because customers often want a custom size. Smaller canvases are a 3/4″ in depth, Canvases 12 x 16 and larger are 1-1/2″ in depth. I set them up so the image runs from edge to edge, and this image wraps around the sides.
