Original Small Painting Greeting Card Impressionistic
Today is the day I began offering my hand painted original greeting cards for purchase. The first card I uploaded to my Etsy shop had 24 views within 2 hrs. That's on a site that has hundreds of thousands visitors each day.
This card has a light, springtime feel to it. Reminds me of the fruit tree blossoms amid spring green leaves.
These cards are impressionistic in style. Some people might classify them as abstract. They are simply products of my playing with colors, especially color shapes.
I started the cards when I recently finished my two year artistic journal of color explorations. Each is unique. I couldn't repeat the exact painting if I tried. They are totally fun to paint. Most turn out really lovely, but, I must admit, some colors don't turn out exciting when I'm finished.
Because I accidentally scraped one corner edge of this card, "Color Chord #2", I'm giving it free to the first person to request it via e-mail. The small painting is fine and excellent for framing.
All the cards have matching white envelopes.
Happy New Year to the person that receives this card AND to everyone else!
