Selecting a Tiny Piece of Creativity

Lee Nixon - Fine Art

No. 2  February 2012

Hello and thank you for stopping by my website to see my Impressionist paintings, drawings, and Floral paintings. I have been painting landscapes and other subject matter for nearly 48 years. My paintings reflect a reverence for a serene earth, and the desire to share it with you through color, pattern, and texture. I work primarily in acrylics for their versatility and compatibility with other media.

Selecting a Tiny Piece of Creativity

Greeting cards provide a great opportunity for the artist to promote his/her work and share a tiny piece of the artist’s creativity. A visit to an art gallery will expose the viewer to numerous post cards, greeting cards and prints of various artists. I have taken on this endeavor as a means of having my work, (Greeting Cards) in numerous homes and businesses.

I am selecting my best artwork to be printed on Greeting Cards, currently four, more will be added later. This is based on the numerous visits to particular works by art lovers, and the numerous awards received from various paintings. The inside of the cards at this time is blank, to allow the buyer to compose his/her personal message.

The Greeting Cards are available at Briarwood Florists and Gifts beginning February 20, 2012. The Florist is located at: 307 N. Madison Rd., Historic Orange Virginia, located in the Old Silk Mill. 540-672-6800, several painting will also be exhibited.

Landscape and Floral Paintings will complement the atmosphere of Briarwood Florists and Gifts. I appreciate the owner, Gregory, for this opportunity.

Greeting cards are 5" x 7" in size and are produced on digital offset printers using 110 lb. paper stock.

Each card is coated with a UV protectant on the outside surface which produces a semi-gloss finish.

The artist's name and the name of the image is printed on the back of each card along with the FAA logo.

Each card comes with a white envelope for mailing and gift giving.

Thanks to all my subscribers for visiting. I invite you to continue to browse my galleries. Please add your comments, and new work will soon be added.
