Description

This is a standard 4x6 folded greeting card of - FAITHFUL EXPRESSION - an original painting by Olga Cuttell of Oladesign. Perfect for all occasions, from birthdays to anniversaries; it is printed on recycled paper, in Canada and includes an envelope. The painting's name, a small Oladesign logo and a brief bio of the artist, adorn the back of the card. The inside of the card is blank.

"Faithful Expression" is part of the second wave of my Bouquet series. Unlike my first wave, which has a lighter and sharper (almost bouncy and bubbly) feel, Faithful Expression tries to capture a deeper more romantic sense of the moment a woman is given flowers by her lover. My lover doesn't like giving me flowers. He says he doesn't like the symbolism of giving me something bright and colorful that quickly wilts and dies. Too many of life's loves start and finish this way, he says. Of course, I love being given flowers, so I gave "Faithful Expression" to myself; a flower that will not wilt and will never die. Now I give it to you.

All cards are also available in giclee art prints in 5x7, 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20 paper sizes or 11x14, 16x20 or 24x30 canvas sizes. Larger canvas print sizes are available by request. Please feel free to inquire about any print size or specification via Etsy conversation any time. Paper prints come signed by the artist.

The original piece was done using an acrylic ink paint on watercolor paper. The technique is very similar to watercolor but tends to keep more vibrant hews and dries permanently to the paper; enabling me to create layered pieces that would be impossible with watercolor.
