October Newsletter 2016

New Digital Paintings
My New Coloring Book is Out!

In my Summer Newsletter I announced that I finished my 50 state birds and flowers coloring book for Fox Chapel Publishing and it had gone to print. This special October Newsletter is to tell you I just got my samples from Fox Chapel and they look great! No, I'm not bragging about my art. I mean the quality of the book is great. The lines of the drawings are dark and crisp, the paper quality is good, and the print colors are accurate. It's a well-made book. So I wanted to get this newsletter out and share some images with you. Scroll down for images, more info, and a link to how you can order my new book on Amazon!

As I said, it's a good quality book with nice paper and print. Each coloring page is one-sided and perforated so you can easily remove them from the book and frame your finished image. The book also includes some smaller, postcard sized images to color and give away or trade, or mail as postcards, or perhaps use in scrapbooking. Each drawing has the name of the state, bird, and flower on the back. In addition to the line drawings you get to color, there are also colored-in samples, and tips for coloring, to give you ideas and inspiration. If you're not into coloring, consider giving this book as a gift to someone you know who does enjoy coloring or is a bird lover, or perhaps even someone who is interested in US history and would like to learn about these state symbols. Click the link below to to see more information about it on the Amazon product page, and order your coloring book in time for Christmas. These are the perfect size for use as stocking stuffers. :)

Art Sales

Visit my Art Sales page for Limited Time Offers and Discount Codes for savings on your entire order of art prints, greeting cards, throw pillows, apparel, phone cases, and more purchased through pixels.com or one of its affiliate sites.

By the way, Pixels.com is part of Fine Art America, a print-on-demand service that I have been using for several years to produce high-quality fine art prints of my work. So you can find my art on either of these sites and you can trust all of them to provide you with the same high-quality prints and excellent service. Both sites sell prints, greeting cards, throw pillows, duvet covers, tote bags, and shower curtains but you can only purchase phone cases, and apparel on Pixels.com so I recommend you visit Pixels instead of FAA to get more options. You should be able to use the same sign-in name and password for both sites so you won't have to register again for one site if you're already registered with the other.
