The original art that is used to create this photographic art card is a mixed media folk art miniature painting on paper, of a naïve sailboat on blue water with the sun rising in the background. Hint of folk art flowers in the foreground. By Canadian folk artist Kathy Poitras.
I offer you hand made photographic art cards of my work.
I like the idea of my art being involved in a person's communication. I am able to create them myself, when an order comes in. I love to add a bit of sparkle to each hand made card if appropriate.
The large 8.5 x 11 inch cards are great if you really want to show off the art, and for situations where there are many people signing the card. I get the photo printed, and mount the picture on a hand scored and folded 11 x 17 inch bristol board sheet using acid free crafters glue. The cards come with an envelope and crystal clear plastic sleeve. They stand beautifully on a shelf when opened. It makes a great gift and is easy to mail.
I also offer a service where you can email me a scan of a hand written message. (Or for a company, many hand written messages that I can randomly place on the inside of the card.
With a bit of help from photoshop I can add the message to the inside of the card. It really truly looks like the card was passed from person to person and they added their own thoughtful message.
Depending on how many messages there are, and how long it takes to add them, I may need a bit of extra money to do this for you.
I can then ship directly to the intended recipient and put your return address on the envelope.
Artist Statement: On a particularly sunny morning, I walk down to the water. The flowers are in bloom and I feel fantastic!
The original painting was gifted to my friend and neighbor Debbie.
