We're Missing You!

 Dear Friend, 
We hope this newsletter finds each of you and your loved ones healthy. Many of us now know at least one person that's dealt with the virus and sadly too many know some that have died. We interact at a distance with only a few people now which is really strange having spent the past 30+ years socializing with thousands at art shows. We're missing seeing your smiling faces and those warm handshakes and hugs. Hopefully, we'll be getting back to some in-person shows by next year. Of course, intimate engagement with our miniature paintings and magnifying glasses compounds our difficulty with doing shows but we are now planning to participate in some virtual events as well as shipping paintings to exhibitions that are adjusting their dates, display space and more to enable patrons to see the artwork in person while staying safe.  We're learning to be flexible and enjoy the moment ... although there does seem to be far more moments in some days now than others! Keep staying safe, healthy, and enjoying life!
Opportunities to own something unique with Rachelle's artwork

We have decided to sell Rachelle's personal copy of her 1995 State of Florida Crawfish Stamp. The reproduction (#1/250) has a painted remarque and the associated #1 stamp and is already matted ready to be framed. ($200) We're also selling the last remaining 1st Date puzzle in our studio. This is still in the unopened package. ($20). These prices include shipping and insurance in the USA.  We only have these single items so the first to email us will get them.

Rachelle is already working on the next painting in the series which is Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer. Works in this new series are available at $1850 each. (That's quite a few million less than the larger original masterpieces!)

Still Life with Granny's Pheasant II by Rachelle Siegrist  
Still Life with Granny's Pheasant II by Rachelle is one of sixteen new paintings we recently added to the Exquisite Miniatures Tour

The Exquisite Miniatures tour is now at The Art Center in Quincy, IL, and opens on September 4th. COVID 19 is impacting the schedule and sadly due to the closure of the museum, the exhibition will not be traveling to Baltimore, MD. Please be sure to check our website schedule for any updates if you plan to see the exhibition in person.

Be Wowed! Admire our paintings with a magnifier!
Just like diamonds, they dazzle in person!

Please note that the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival this November has asked us to participate in their revised show that will last two months in duration and feature artwork from past featured artists at the Festival.  We will be shipping artwork to them in early November but will not be attending in person.

We have also submitted works to the MPSGS exhibition that has expanded its venue display space to allow for social isolation.  Since this show and others won't start until later this fall we have not listed them here but will next month.
