Sending a hand painted card feels rather more personal than sending a commercial printed one. It’s not always possible because of time constraints. But it does say something about how important the recipient is to you.
This one went in a parcel to my son at Sandhurst along with some chocolates I know he likes. I thought he would like the simple countryside scene, given his love of the outdoors.
And this was a 40th birthday card for a creative friend who has always been enthusiastic about my paintings. She has a wonderful perspective of the world as viewed through the lens of her camera, so I chose to paint this garden scene through the lens of a pretty web, with a bit of soft focus in the background.
It’s rather nice to be able to personalise these little cards in some way that reflects something about the person receiving them.
