Greetings cards idea…..”Robin” 3D Acrylic Painting from start to finish

I’ve been thinking for a while about doing greetings cards of my 3D Acrylic Paintings. They’d be a good entry level way for people to own a piece of my work. The problem I’ve had with it though is that my work is about being 3D (- Tactile – Sculptural – Unique -) which a 2D card isn’t.

I’ve been trying to get my head around that for a while and now I’m at the point of thinking that people like my paintings for the images themselves with the 3D effect being an extra element to it. That being the case a greetings card can still be appreciated for the image even if it doesn’t have the 3D element to it.

So which to choose to make a greetings card of?

Christmas cards seem like an obvious place to start and I know that they don’t necessarily have to be “Christmasy” but I’d made this “Robin” (below) a couple of years ago and I thought it would look nice as a Christmas card. But then me being me I wanted to have another go, just in case I liked the new one better.


So here is the new “Robin” 3D Acrylic Painting from start to finish…. (hover over the pictures to read more about it)

Now you’ve seen them both which one do you like best the new or the old one?

Take care
