'Twas six days before Christmas, and all ‘round the place
the thoughtful delayers were starting to pace.
"Yikes! I've done nothing!" was heard here and there.
"If only I'd purchased those radishes or that pear!"
Pear on Yellow, 8" x 8”, oil on wood
OK, maybe that's a bit of a stretch. But just in case you're still wondering what to do for a special gift or two, I am happy to wave a joyful banner for giving art.
And to offer a few suggestions, from very small to medium to large.At the very small end, I have a fresh, new batch of note cards: a set of six different images (or your choice of six) with envelopes, wrapped with red ribbon.
There are also several small paintings by me (and lots of other lovely art, jewelry, balsam pillows, and more!) at Artascope Studios at 352 Cottage Road, South Portland. They are open 10 to 6 daily until Christmas.
And then there's what's at my house--from notecards to small paintings, to some large ones! Such as...
In the Garden, 30" x 24," oil on canvas, framed
From now through December 31, 2011 I am offering family and friends (that's you!) 10% off any paintings purchased from me at my home. (Please note: this offer does not apply to purchases made at either Artascope or Yarmouth Frame Shop.)
If you'd like to stop by to see what's at my house, let me know! If you live too far away to do that but would like to know what I have, call or email me, and we can go from there.
Wherever you find yourself this day, I wish you a joyful holiday season! And my thanks for the many ways you have supported me and my art-making this past year.
I am a writer, speaker, spiritual director and life coach, and also a passionate painter and lover of the natural world. This blog holds both present-day observations of my life and pieces of the larger story of my journey from Episcopal priest to "free-lance human being". It's a midlife story of self-discovery and freedom, a "coming of age at 55" story, an ecclesiastical story through 24 years of being ordained and out the other side, a theological and spiritual story of an unexpected, evolving faith apart from religious beliefs, finding myself more grateful and having more fun with the ongoing adventure of being alive and being myself.
