Limited Edition Art Cards

In 2015 during a particularly difficult time in my life,

many friends reached out to me with gestures of love,

and I wanted to thank them.

Nathan, my step-son, brought me flowers,

so I painted this watercolor…

Then Office Depot made inexpensive prints on cardstock,

and I found BIG envelopes to mail these “Art Cards”.

I wrote my expressions of gratitude and love on the back

and mailed these thank-you-note-pieces-of-art

to my sweet friends.

I’d been thinking about creating my Art Cards again,

and had even ordered little easels to include in the envelopes…

Three weeks ago

I asked, Judy, the owner of  Wildflower Gift Gallery,

if I could create a display with my original art and Art Cards

for her shop, and she said, “Yes!”

I found a discarded flag stand in a 14th St West shop…

And paneling that looks like rough-cut lumber…

Painted a sign…

and lots of art…

And with my husband’s carpentry skills

we created this two sided display…

Oh and I made little baskets for the cards

out of this stuff called hardware cloth…

I absolutely LOVE being creative.

 btw…I’ll be changing the Art Cards every Friday,

and I’ll take suggestions on what to paint!

More info coming!!

Thanks for following along,

Linda
