About This Listing
This is a gallery-quality fine art print featuring Bryana's original miniature gouache painting "You Get The Best Gods You Can Make." The print measures 5x7 inches, including a 1-inch white border around the perimeter of the piece, and is signed and labelled with pencil in the bottom margin. It is printed on Moab’s 290 gsm Entrada Bright paper. Each print is accompanied by a printed and stamped artist statement telling the story of the painting and documenting the specifications of the print. All prints are archival and unframed. 

Bryana Says
How can I tell you about this mini in just a few lines? It’s aesthetically-inspired by Ang Lee’s 2012 film “The Life of Pi” (a film that’s a little clumsy in places but one I love so much it sometimes hurts), and its title comes from the closing line of Mimi Jennings’ poem “Madonna on her countless portraits,”—first published in The Christian Century; a poem I reread at least once a month. These two pieces of art both tell me the same story, and it isn’t (as some people might assume) the story that because God doesn’t exist we must each invent a little God for ourselves. On the contrary, it’s this: the God who exists is sweeter than all our pictures of Them; is bound to be most like our Best Stories.
