Wedding Anniversary

Today is our 26th Wedding Anniversary. Once again my main gift to Susan has been a Hand Made Card painted in watercolour. She now has quite a sizeable collection of cards that every so often we will browse through and reflect on. The card itself will often be of a place that we have visited in the past year and the words inside will pertain to that particular trip.

It’s not just Susan that receives a Hand Made Card by myself. Over the years I’ve given various family members and close friends this kind of gift which I know is really appreciated. Of course, what they are actually receiving is an original watercolour which is worth £300 to £500.

A Hand Made Card that captures a place or moment that is shared by a loved one is a wonderful way of celebrating a special anniversary, birthday or memory. They don’t have to be tucked away in a drawer. Framed up and hung on the wall, the Hand Made Card becomes a valued piece of artwork to cherish forever.

Christmas Present

Last year my second grandson Harry was born. His Christmas present was a Hand Made Card painted in watercolour. It was of a canal in Venice. The same canal where his dad dropped his toy cars into the canal when he was a little boy living in Italy. Susan and I went to Venice last year with our son Oliver and his wife Sophie. We went to see the home where they used to live and I did a sketchbook watercolour of the scene. Inside I wrote inside the story which I know Harry will read when he grows up.

Someone once said that “LOVE” is spelt T-I-M-E. Spending time with someone, which is the most precious thing we have, is a wonderful way of expressing love. Commissioning a Hand Made Card or an original painting of a place or person that holds dear memories its another beautiful way of cherishing those times together.

If you would like to commission a small Hand Made Card or a larger original painting then please visit our website or call in to our Gallery in Ponteland.
