A friend has ordered a set of these cards in the midst of the rush for “Christmas” Monday Cyber-deals. How refreshing to order art reflective of my journeys to relaxed, beautiful Italia. I like to say to friends, especially when I am about to return to Italy, “The Italians already had their time of conquering everything – the known Western world, so now they are into good food, good wine, good conversation and amazing art.” These cards remind me of lazy afternoons when I was loli-gagging around beautiful, peaceful Lucca, Italy. That’s where the original was painted.
My prices are fairly static, although I am offering free shipping this week. (5×7 inch cards, 10 for $20.) In the spirit of relaxed Italy, I’m not throwing myself into the mad, frenzied consumeristic wheeling and dealing. Instead, I’ll mail these out, little by little, as I can. As Leonardo Da Vinci used to say, “Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work, your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”
If you’d like a set of 10 of these cards, please feel free to let me know here:http://thecreativecall.net/art-store.php and just fill out the form on that page with your request for Italian art cards. I’ll be sending them out by the end of this week. Buon Natale!
