Description

Perfect for all occasions, from birthdays to anniversaries; this is a standard 4x6 folded greeting card of - TINY DANCER - an original painting by Olga Cuttell of Oladesign. 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.

"Tiny Dancer" has a fairly unique story behind it: It was the first piece I painted after the birth of my baby girl. During my pregnancy I found it very difficult to concentrate on generating new pieces for the collection. For some time after Alisa was born, it was even harder and several months passed without my even picking up a brush. One day my husband surprised me by returning a little late from work with a bunch of new inks in colors I'd never tried before. I think it was his way of giving me a little nudge. I sat down the next day and decided to play around with the new colors, just to see what they would do in a little water. If you look at Tiny Dancer's tutu, that's what was happening there. The rest just flowed. There wasn't any pressure to make something spectacular, so what did come felt perfectly natural. Coincidently, my daughter loves to dance.

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.
