2010 Autumn Greeting Card Collection

Each season I choose card designs to take with me to demonstrations and workshops. I try to select a variety to show the  many subjects I cover in my watercolours and always lean towards favourites.Paintings that hold a story or meaning with an emotional attachment. My cards  have been selling out very quickly so I wasn't surprised to find I had absolutely none to fall back on at the start of this Autumn season. On top of this I am being asked for more by galleries. The selection I had on display at the SWA Society for Women Artists sold out in no time so I knew it was time for an order. This arrived yesterday and I am thrilled with the new cards which will be available from August 31st. Here are my new cards and I hope you like them.

 " Beauty of Venice"
From the cover of my book which seemed a wonderful way to celebrate its launch at the Mall Galleries.

" Teilo"
Again from my book " How to Paint Colour and Light in Watercolour"
The owner of this gorgeous dog is delighted he is now available on a card. and owns the original painting.

" Just Looking"
Without a cockerel in my new collection I  doubt anyone would talk to me!
I love this one which was sold at an auction for the Lady Taverners raising funds for  very special children.

"African Gold"
My painting which was selected as a finalist for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition 2010


" Spring Flowers"
It seems strange to sell Spring Flowers in Autumn but they  jsut seemed right for this  new collection.

And I don't normally do this but I have had so many requests for  " Too Wise" which has sold out in every single workshop and gallery that it will be available once more this fall.

 "Too Wise"
Sold out at the SWA Society for Women Artists Exhibition 2010
