I have been saving the little guy's finger paintings for a "rainy day" project. Today I finally made note cards to tuck away for future gift giving. Once framed with the solid color it reminds me of some of the contemporary art out there today. I am going to put an "artist statement" on the back. I usually type who made the card on address labels since you can print out a bunch at once. It might go something like this.
"The artist lives in a small A-Frame in view of a mountain. He gets his inspiration from water, closing doors, and trains."
I also put together two book marks that I will laminate and put a beaded ribbon on for grandad's birthday in June. Grandad is a huge fan of books so he could probably use about 10 of these.
