Back in January I shared my newly decorated Winter corner which included a photo of the big Del Ray snow storm of 2010. Well now that it’s Spring, out goes the Winter wonderland and in comes some new seasonally appropriate art, an oil pastel drawing by my 7-year-old son Jack.
Of course I’m biased because my son made it, but I think it’s quite stunning. I watched as he carefully layered the flowers and buildings; he had a vision and he took his time to bring it to life. But I also love it because the colors are so vibrant and its simplicity reminds me of Van Gogh. I’m completely in awe of his talent.
But that’s not the end of it. I loved the drawing so much I photographed it, uploaded it to Snapfish and ordered a set of postcards. I wasn’t sure how they would look, and at $.99/piece, I decided to order just a small amount before investing too much money.
A week later, the postcards arrived, crisp, glossy and picture-perfect. I’m more than pleased with how they turned out. I’m going to order more to keep on hand if we need to send someone a quick note. The world needs more postcards, don’t you think?
I’ve also ordered sets of notecards with this design — easy presents for relatives, friends and teachers — and I can’t wait to see what the kids will create for our holiday cards this year.
