I find people use these cards for all sorts of greetings, from invitations to parties to friendly hellos and thinking of yous to sympathy at the loss of a pet or even a person. Others have taken their favorites and slipped them into 5" x 7" frames for their wall.
ABOUT THE ART
These greeting cards are created from paintings of the cats with whom I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my life—and that includes a few friends’ cats as well. It was through observing their feline grace and their individual natures that I found my muse as an artist and finally decided to get down on paper what I saw with my eyes and felt with my heart. There's a story behind each one: read about each of the designs and order in Feline Greeting Cards and Notecards in the Marketplace on my website, www.bernadette-k.com.
I’ve included a mix of pastel and watercolor and a mix of styles, from realistic detail to loose impressionistic scenes so you have a choice for all occasions. Cards have only the image on the front, are blank inside, and carry the title of the painting and information about it on the back, you can write inside it whatever you want. Some people purchase them to frame as little prints as well.
Right now there area 15 cards in the series, so a set of a dozen may differ from one set to another—if there is a design you want to be sure you get, please add it in the "notes" section when you order and I'll make sure it's included.
Cards are blank inside but can be customized with your message (please convo on Etsy).
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
While I render many other subjects now it all began with my cats and the hopeless affection I felt for each of them and all their moods and quirks and manners of affection toward me. This is the gift they gave to me, and I will be forever in their debt, spending a lifetime to pay it off by sharing them with others.
My cats have no choice about being models, especially "if they like to eat" as I always tell them when they roll their eyes about being my models.
