The Wonder of Blogs by Margot Justes








A couple of months ago, maybe even a bit longer, I posted a blog about my favorite contemporary artist, Eyvind Earle.
I received an e-mail from a collector, who asked if we could exchange Christmas cards, of course I jumped at the chance.
Any time I saw a box, I bought it. My collection of cards goes back a few years, they are no longer offered for sale.
We agreed to the exchange, and one day I received a gold mine, not only did I get quite a few cards, but 3 magnificent posters. He knew I couldn't possibly match his generosity, because we only discussed the cards.
I only have a few cards and an actual serigraph I purchased recently. I was touched, not only did he trust me to reciprocate but he sent me a priceless gift knowing the exchange would not be fair one.
Above are a few of the cards and below are the framed posters.
I'm getting the hang of visual blogging...enjoy.
Isn't the work enticing? Each stroke of the brush is mesmerizing, light, airy, serene and simply enchanting.

Till next time,

Sometimes I wish I could draw or paint rather than write. Such talent as these are a wonder to gaze at.
Thanks for sharing them with us!
