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!!
