Local Greeting Cards

Today was a good day to prime a bunch of canvases, and I made some greeting cards made with antique local postcards. They feature various shots of the Ashokan Reservoir, as well as an old card of the Senate House in Kingston NY, under a full moon no less. They can be found in the "local" section of my studio, local being the Catskills from Phoenicia to Kingston and beyond. 

These are  pre 1930 cards. I love the colors in them and how everything is just so less cluttered. Someone should do a show of the old vs. new. I would, but I just don't have the time for every idea I have!

Most of my cards feature images from 1840-1940. These are 6.00 each, with none more than 8.00. Frameable and a very cool thing to send for any occasion!

Off to paint!
