Just a reminder that the last day to catch the Pocketful of Posies exhibit at the Upcountry History Museum – Furman University in Greenville, SC is Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016. As I’ve mentioned before, this is the last stop on the tour and it’s gratifying to hear from many of you who’ve gone out of your way to see the show. My goal was to offer the opportunity to see my original work and I’m happy that has happened in so many locations! No matter how excellent the printed reproductions, seeing the real 3d art is a different experience than looking at the pages of the book. Sometimes I wish the exhibit would continue, but my instincts say it’s time to wind down the project and move onto the next creative endeavor.
During the 5+ years since the book was published, I haven’t actively promoted sales of the original illustrations, since I wanted the collection to stay intact for the traveling exhibit. Over the last 2 years years, the size of the exhibit has reduced, as buyers have purchased about half of the pieces. Many people saw the book and contacted me, purchasing pieces without seeing the originals. Other buyers saw the exhibit and wanted to have one of their own. Now that the remaining artwork will soon be shipped home from South Carolina, it’s time to announce that 22 framed originals from Pocketful of Posies are available for sale.
Interested in purchasing an original piece? Please contact me for a list of available artwork. Each piece is displayed under Plexiglas in a custom-made cherry wood frame. Prices range from $2,500 to $6,500.
