Blatant self promotion

My new etsy shop has opened!

My handpainted and limited edition printed postcards are based on the nine chapters of "The Art of Travel" by Alain de Botton.

Each of the nine postcards represent a chapter, and the complete cycle of work represents one trip, from anticipation (The Grass is Greener) to the return home (All the Things You Left Behind). The common phrases used during travel take on additional meaning when coupled with the patterns and landscapes of the miniature paintings of India and the Himalayan area, which evoke the imagery and keepsakes of a voyage.

The original hand-painted postcards are gouache, pencil, ink, and metallic paint on watercolor paper. The printed postcards are offset printed in a limited edition of 250. Printed cards are sold as a complete and signed set.

Oops, I posted my name with an incorrect url. So I'll correct and also say, I LOVE these mini paintings of a postcard!
