Recycled paintings

Sample greeting cards

Have you ever had paintings that didn’t quite “work”? My friend Rita Osborne asked me to share a table with her at an upcoming Holiday Bazaar and I didn’t have anything to sell. But I also needed to clean my studio. Found that with a little editing, had lots of small work appropriate for greeting cards. And that got me started painting more just so I could cut them up.

I will be selling my original watercolor greeting cards at the UWA Holiday Bazaar at the UAF Wood Center in Fairbanks on Saturday, November 5, 10am-4pm. My table is #102 located on the lower level. The Bazaar takes place both Saturday and Sunday, but I will only be there on Saturday. Parking is free on campus on weekends and there is a shuttle bus from the Taku parking lot off Farmer’s Loop. This is your chance to obtain some original (tiny) work.
