Merry and Bright



A last minute entry just in time for Christmas. I actually did this to grace all of my personal Christmas Cards and couldn't help sharing it with you. Done in a mixture of acrylics, Prisma Markers and Coloured pencils. I think it's one of my favourites thus far!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not . . .



I remember those wonderful, heart wrenching days of young love. Secret crushes,tender and sweet, and sometimes painful . . . a testing ground for the glorious days of true love to come. as usual Emmeline has her little friendly Robin friend to keep her company and help her count the petals of her love . . .

Available as a card or a print. Cards are £2.50 and prints are £15. All cards and prints are printed out on Somerset Enhanced 100% cotton archival paper, and with beautiful pigment inks. The Prints are A4 size, suitable for framing in any way which you desire. They can also be printed smaller and hung in groups. (prices are adjusted accordingly) The cards are mounted on quality linen textured card and are 4 by 6 inches in size, left blank inside so that you can write your own personal message of greeting.

All my art is available as either a print or a card. Contact me on MarieAliceJoan at aol dot com to find out more details. Thanks so much!

A Stolen Kiss

A kiss, when all is said, what is it?
A rosy dot placed on the "i" in loving;
'Tis a secret told to the mouth instead of to the ear.
~Edmond Rostand




As you can tell my mind has been on Valentines this afternoon. Just a playful little picture. I love the little look of embarassment on the little boy's face, and the little girl looks so sure of herself. Contact me to see how you can get this print as a card for that special someone. (Obviously the watermark will not appear in the print!)

Just in Time for Christmas



Here's my latest creation, entitled A Candycane Christmas. Just in time for a last minute Christmas Card or even gift tag I suppose. Anyone who knows me knows I have a penchant for cats, especially ORANGE ones! It runs in the family. My mother has a penchant for them as well. Anyways, if anyone is interested in purchasing this painting as a card, set of gift tags or indeed any of my paintings as such, feel free to contact me via my e-mail. Thanks so much and have a great day!

Some New Card Samples



I had the chance this week to do two new paintings for cards. I think they turned out quite cute. The first one is a Christmas one, of a girl all ready to decorate her tree with a garland of Gingerbread men. She looks quite pleased with her efforts and I can just smell the gingerbread!



Next is a little sweetheart for Valentines or anytime you want to tell someone that you love them. She has her arms spread wide open in love for you!

Remember if you would like these or indeed any of my artwork as cards, just e-mail me on MarieAliceJoan at aol dot com and I will be happy to talk about it and make some arrangements at a very reasonable price. They are quite nicely presented on quality linen card, each in their own plastic film packet for protection, with a certificate of authenticity on the back detailing the name of the piece, the artist. It's A Marie Card!
