Yesterday, lo and behold, my daughter said, "mom, there's a package for you." and I immediately smiled. Oh my, AIRMAIL from Australia, signed by my lovely friend Alisa Coburn! Yipppeeeeee!!!
If you remember a long, long time ago, there was an international art exchange and I had sent a few pieces of art to people in different countries, and asked Alisa if she would want to participate. At the time, it didn't work into the schedule, but one day a few months ago, Alisa mentioned she'd be sending a parcel..OH BOY!
And here is what was found in a lovely tissue-wrapped, red&white string tied package:

A gorgeous, gorgeous hand painted, multi-media art piece inspired by a "April Rain Song" by Langston Hughes...this piece is something that I will treasure! Alisa's palette and subject matter, line work, and composition are beautiful..thank you for a one-of-a-kind piece, Alisa!here and here. And the beginnings of her inspiration here. Oh, I was charmed by this fox when I first saw it!
And this is the front of Alisa's sweet business card. Her characters and illustrations range from fresh and storybook sweet, to thoughtful and poetic linework.
I'm so amazed at this gorgeous little package of gems..thank you, Alisa, for sharing your work with all of us and for adding beautiful pieces to my art collection here in California.
