Greeting Cards – Now Accepting Some Online Orders

 

I’ll be accepting internet sales for my greeting cards. Stay tuned, there will be a more traditional e-commerce store front coming too!

Details:

  • All Greeting Cards are Blank Inside
  • Each card comes with an envelope
  • Price:
    • 1 card for $5, or any combination of 5 cards for $20.
    • Plus Sales Tax, as well as Shipping & Handling.

 

7 designs to choose from in 5×5″ sizes:

Six designs printed on Metallic Pearl Cardstock. You can view some video here, to see the specialty paper.

  1. Texas Longhorns I (one facing, one mostly turned away)
  2. Texas Longhorns III (side profiles)
  3. Quoth the Raven
  4. Tulip
  5. Quacked Up Pair (Ducks)
  6. Poppy

One design printed on Glossy 130# Paper.

  1. This Side of the Pond
Things of Note:
  • Some Postal Services may require extra postage on the 5×5″ square shaped pieces of mail.
  • On the 5×5″ Metallic Pearl cards, because the inside of the card has the same paper treatment as the front, this means that it’s a bit tricky to write on. I’ve had the best success with Sharpie Markers (not to be confused with the Sharpie Pens), but you will need to give it about 10 seconds to prevent smudging.

2 designs to choose from in 5×7″ sizes:

Printed on 14 pt cardstock, with High Gloss UV Coating on the outside, the inside is uncoated to make it easier to write on.

  1. Peacock
  2. Sunflowers – IV

Art Anywhere

I am a big believer that no space is too small for art. Whether it’s your office in a row of cubicles, a locker, or a wee little nook, you can always fill it with things that inspire and move you.

In that spirit, I’ve put together a bunch of mini-frames, with 3×3 inch prints inside them of my photos, which I’ll be selling at my booth in the Foust Event Center for $10 a piece this upcoming weekend (May 19-21, 2017) at Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s available:

 

An Embarrassment of Riches

The Cleburne Camera Club’s 2017 Photo Contest and Exhibition Sale has an embarrassment of riches with striking photos from a range of photographers, including some very talented youth. And I’m not just saying that because I have 3 pieces in the show.

Awards were announced at the Opening Day reception on April 29th. The show runs through May 26th, and is free and open to the public for viewing from Monday – Saturday during 10am – 4pm daily at the JN Long Cultural Arts Complex located at 425 Granbury Street in Cleburne, Texas.

 

How Metropolitan

One of my favorite places to go when I’m in New York is the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As much as I enjoy their Medieval Collection housed at the Cloisters, and their Asian Art to spend a day, I particularly love their antiquities collection including works from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.

One of the highlights of my visits is the Temple of Dendur, which was preserved in part due to Jacqueline Kennedy. She helped Egypt preserve the Abu Simbel Temple, a UNESCO site that would end up flooded from a man-made reservoir the government was needing to build. In return Egypt wanted to give a gift, and that gift, chosen by Jackie, was the Temple of Dendur which is now housed within the MET.  This trip, the museum also had the massive Athena statue from Pergammon on loan and display (as well as some other works), and Athena towers over you in the main lobby as a greeter to the sacred halls of art. Since I’ve seen the Pergammon altar that resides now in Berlin a few years ago, seeing this was like another piece of the puzzle.

At one point I got a bit lost among the modern art. The window not only reflected back the artwork on the wall, but it also had a winter landscape view of Central Park, and the silhouette of the city skyline as the sun began descending. I found the juxtaposition of inside and outside, solidity and transparency intriguing.
