This book is a rare collection of 281 works of art, together with entertaining stories describing their creation during the lifetime of their artist. The 33 Christmas cards tell personal stories about the artist. They are intertwined with art-related stories that explain how the artist’s abstract style changed in order to create realistic portraits of animals.
Most of the 281 works of art which include oil paintings, pastels, pencil, crayon, pen and ink and watercolor drawings are spot varnished to highlight and protect the images in the book. The varnish enriches their color and the effect is striking. The linen book cover includes a beautiful foil embossing. The book is printed in the USA by Puritan Press Inc.
This book is the perfect gift for aspiring artists of any age who dream to become professional artists. I hope this book will encourage artists to never give up and to take advantage of every opportunity to promote their art and themselves as an artist.
