Priscilla made this first.

Priscilla took our brilliant idea of creating art that we could then print and then hand paint and embellish to a whole new level with “Windswept” What a great little painting, and wonderful concept.

8.5x11 inch completed print. Version A.

Priscilla spent at least two hours creating this wonderful hand detailed “print”  The one of a kind umbrella is painted directly on version A.  The dress is embellished with silver metallic ink and extreme glitter, and there are various other details she has made.  I just have to show you the other versions.  “Windswept” is definitely one of my favorites.

Version D with pink and blue pearl stripes! What a great umbrella!!

Fabulous umbrella, hand painted with pearl paint, acrylic and little gems applied by hand. The little gems are a fabulous touch in the middle of the flower design on the umbrella.

I love the relief paint ribs on the umbrella, and the little "pearls" and pink peal paint. Bravo Priscilla!!

I love the polka dots. Painted with pearl paint.

Now, let me explain something here. These “versions” are the actual picture a person would receive if they bought the  print. They are one of a kind, and well, if someone bought, say version E. It would be gone. Priscilla might choose to paint another one, but it wouldn’t be exactly the same. She would follow the basic idea of the piece.  If someone wanted to buy 10 version E’s, they could. But each version would be based on version E, and hand painted by Priscilla. That means she would print out ten copies of the one that has no design in the umbrella, and she would then hand paint each umbrella, each dress would be embellished, etc. The same thing goes for the greeting cards. Here are some of the versions of those. (I just discovered if you click on the thumb nail image  it gets big, so you can really see it well!)

5x7 inch greeting card version A

5x7 inch greeting card Version B

5x7 inch greeting card, version C

5x7 inch version D

5x7 inch version F.

As with the larger works, we do exactly the same thing with 5×7 inch cards.  In this case, Priscilla has painted each and every umbrella from being a blank umbrella to being these wonderful little works of art you see here.  So if someone wanted to buy ten version F’s they would get ten cards, that Priscilla has hand painted, based on her version F design. Exchange in abundance, my friends! If you read this blog entry and want to order these fabulous “Windswept” greeting cards, or prints, they are all in our on-line store.
