When I was in college, a friend matted a couple of her flower photographs and gave them to me as a Christmas gift. One of the most unique, best gifts I had ever been given, I kept these matted photographs on a shelf in every place I lived. They are with me today, 30 years later.
Because you won’t see gifts of original art in a big box store replicated over and over and sold as commodities, I believe paintings are the most personal, lasting gifts to give. And, as a lover of the arts, I want everyone to experience the joy that fine art brings to any home, office, or classroom.
At my new Etsy shop, Schwebach Arts, I sell original paintings that also serve as greeting cards, and I mat them so that you can write a message that stays in the card, and becomes part of the painting when it’s framed. Your handwritten note inside the card/painting makes the gift mean even more to the special person receiving it.
I also sell cards with mini easels for someone who doesn’t have any wall space left (lucky person!) and framed paintings in numerous sizes. My art spans a wide price range so that everyone can own a piece of fine art.
I love inks—especially alcohol inks. I also am an illustrator and digital artist, so I create prints on the computer and replicate them with standard printing inks. From time to time, I go back to pastels, the first medium I explored as an artist. And sometimes I put all these media together and create mixed media collages.
I hope you enjoy perusing my shop at www.schwebacharts.etsy.com.
