Pink Roses and Hat


Hello from Virginia!

Today I actually have the heat on because it is a cold, cloudy and damp day here in Virginia, but I do hope your day is going well.

I think today I will publish my painting of "Pink Roses and Hat" it will lift my mood.

I wanted to tell you that this has been my best selling art print and I also offer art greeting cards of this print and people actually mat and frame it to make a small piece of art for the table or to hang on the wall.

All of my fine art prints have a greeting art card just like the painting that can be purchased. Each of the cards are priced differently because some of them take longer to draw and paint. They are 5 X 7 inches and are printed on a very heavy card stock...
