Holiday Gift List #2 – Support An Artist!

2017 In Forests Calendar

Continuing with the holiday theme of gift giving and receiving, here are more wonderful gift ideas for your friends and yourself this holiday season. All of these artists are on Etsy, so get a cup of your favorite beverage and take a few moments to go through each of their offerings. You’ll probably end up ordering yourself a gift. You’re welcome.

1. If you haven’t already seen artwork by Andie Thrams, you’re in for a treat. The photo above is her 2017 Calendar, In Forests. It is a digital print of original artwork and a bargain way to add Andie’s artwork to your collection at only $26.00. Looking for something you can display on a wall? She has several 8 x 8 prints of her work ready to frame. I’m in love with her Poppy piece for $60.00

And as much as I’m sure you’d like an original artists’ book by Andie, they’re hard to get. So she has graciously reproduced them digitally and you can add them to your collection or give them as a gift for only $40.00. I have the 2012 book and it’s beautiful!
