I never tire of getting mail. Not bills... the good kind! Cards, postcards, little letters and notes from friends. It seems to be a lost art. People just don't seem to make the time to send actual mail anymore. It's all electronic communication these days and truth be told, it makes me sad.
A bunch of my art friends and I still actually do send mail to each other on a fairly regular basis. And it's always so nice and surprising to open up the mailbox and see something fun and friendly looking back at me. It puts a smile on my face and brightens my day, for sure.
It got me to thinking... why not create cards that can also be framed into artwork once they're sent? Seriously... it's like sending a card AND a gift all in one! So out came the watercolors and on went the creativity hat!
As you'll see in my shop, I've got a bunch of different themed card sets that you can buy to send out to family and friends. And once it arrives, the recipient can put the card into a frame and display it! A thoughtful and unique "gift" for your friends and family. And what's more, these cards are blank on the inside so they can be used for any occasion (or no occasion at all, which is my favorite!)
Stop by and check out my hand painted watercolor greeting cards in my online shop!
This weekend is a rainy one. A good one to stay inside and paint. And I need to make some nice new hand painted greeting cards for my online shop too!
Watercolors are one of my favorite, favorite, favorite mediums to paint in. I love how translucent they are and the way the colors intermingle with each other. I'm not a realism-inspired artist, but one who likes quirky and whimsical colors and subjects. Think: bunnies with bow ties!
Here's a few of the paintings that I've finished up on note cards that will be available in my shop this week:
