A Painting Each Day Keeps the Blues Away!

Rummaging the Internet for a work of art to illustrate this year's New Year celebrations we were lucky enough to stumble upon the extensive collection of paintings created by Ann Elizabeth Schlegel, Bethlehem (PA).

A message at the top of the sidebar on her blog offers to send you a painting a day - upon your email request of course.

The collection of figurative paintings elevate a variety of every day items, from household clutter to kitchen and cooking utensils, to a carnival of colors and shapes.

The chosen illustration for New Year's Eve we'll keep under wraps till tomorrow, but as a consolation we include a post by Ann Elizabeth dating back to Thanksgiving 2007: a series of charming allegories, mostly female figures representing a variety of drinks, cocktails, grapes and some of the other festive things that brighten up the dark days of winter.

A Painting Each Day: "Adult Beverage Gift Items"

Friday morning I begin my quest to paint, exhibit and sell at Christkindlemarkt in Bethlehem, PA for forty straight days. I will be painting my Painting Each Day series and also exhibiting my Adult Beverage prints and cocktail aprons. The prints and aprons have been big sellers to those shoppers searching for the perfect 'cash and carry' item for the individual who enjoys the unique gifts.

I sign everything and the prints are also numbered in a limited edition series.

So .... if you're out of the area and are thinking 'Hmmm .... wouldn't 'so and so' really like this great print or cocktail apron, just drop me an email and I can get it to you in time for the Christmas season. (...) >>>
