I think about the idea of having the holidays once every two years. That way, we’d have more time to get excited, and prepared. More anticipation. More time to think about the people in our lives that we’d like to give to. And more time to make things by hand.
I love giving things that are made by individuals. There is something spiritual that translates through the object. I especially feel that about paintings.
I’m participating in a very special event in Gowanus that brings together great local artists, in a local and favorite bar called Halyards. You will find very special, small hand made gifts that are one of kind and perfect for giving this season. You will also discover a warm, beautiful bar with amazing grilled cheese sandwiches and other delicious offerings, friendly bar tenders and people passionate about creating a joyful and special holiday this year to celebrate peace, community, and all the good things of life.
I will be at the market on Sunday December 6th, selling mini paintings packaged in small boxes with hand pulled ribbons. Each painting is an original work, signed and archived. Each also comes with a tiny note telling a mini story about its subject. The size is 3 x 3″ so you won’t have trouble sticking them in a stocking or finding wall space. They are $50.
