Each of the six FISH THERAPY cards, which measure 5 x 7, carries its own special message of courage on the back (the inside is blank) for anyone going through a difficult time. Even the package cover can be used as a post card. The package of six cards and envelopes retails for $15 (wholesale orders are welcome), or pick your favorite image and order 6 or more of those (6 for $15).

Lake Cards, based on paintings of Sleeping Bear Dunes on Lake Michigan, are also available in three different 4-card packs, $10.00 each.

Summer has begun with a bang–tornado warnings, hail, and thunderstorms–and I’m working up a sweat just working at the keyboard, but it’s welcome here in Michigan, where until last week the weather was unrelentingly chilly.

Fish Therapy Cards

I’m up to six cards so far, and need to paint two more for a total of eight. I’ve shown them to a few people, who seem to like them just fine. I think of them as Encouragement Cards, fun colorful real art to give a little encouragement to someone going through a hard time.

There’s nothing inside but on the back is my picture, some information about how the fish cards came about, and a bit about the particular fish on that card. I hope to have them ready by the end of May.

This card I did to fit an antique oval frame with curved glass that reminded me of a pool or fishbowl.
