These small, mixed media images will be used as a tiny thank you when someone buys a painting! They fit in an envelope, and can be used as mail art. I've often written thank you notes to collectors and enclosing a small original will be an extra step in showing my gratitude. The idea has been graciously shared by Linda Blondheim, another Florida artist who also loves the Florida Landscape. Thanks, Linda!
Two thank-you notes will go out this week, both to valued collectors who have purchased paintings of mine for their children. It's happened before, and I'm always thrilled! The idea that people want to share their love of art, they are teaching their children the value of original art, are willing to pay, and that the kids actually want it, is satisfying to me in just the best way!
I spoke about my art, the Everglades, and the Marco Island Arts community and did a brief demonstration at a luncheon held yesterday. I used a photo to block out a painting in a short time. It's a good start, and we'll see where it goes. I've promised to post it here upon completion!
