sunday shelf - calendar of art


pve design illustration for calendar
A few years ago, I illustrated a calendar for this fun gal. She was looking for a gift to thank her clients and wanted something for them to remember her by each month. It was such a fun project for me. When I took on the project I asked if she could provide some images by month and she gave me so much information, it was a pleasure to capture each image for the 12 months.
If you are looking for a special gift, and have shelved the thought, why not give art.
The gift of art is everlasting.

I wish you would come out with a calendar-I would have to have them for wonderful gifts! Are you snowed in this morning? Here the sun is out, but it's cold! Soups already simmering away.

Debra,
Yes, I need to do my own "pve" calendar! I am here, no snow, a long list of "to dos" as the skiers will come back hungry. Stay warm.

Please do a calendar! Then I can frame my favorites after the year is through! xx

What a great idea! How lovely that they change it out every month, then keep them for framing later.

Best,

I love giving calendars that are lovely so that the person could frame the photos if they chose once the calendar year is over. YOURS would be certainly frame-able. I agree, 2011 is the year for a PVE calendar!
Happy Sunday to you & hope you get some of those 'to-do's' checked off your list!

This was such a great idea - and I'm dying to see the other months as well. Put me on the list for wanting a calendar! I've admired your work for some time though I haven't had the occasion to use it - I'd be thrilled with a calendar! Let us know when it's ready for purchase!! Enjoy your blog tremendously...
