The Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist

News for Friend!

July 2020 ~ Next Issue: August 2020 

Our Changing World

 Dear Friend, 
 
We hope this newsletter finds you and your family safe, healthy, and still enjoying life!  It seems we are slowly getting accustomed to the new normal but it is weird to see changes in our business after 33 years of doing things the same year after year.  As you may know, most shows for 2020 and into 2021 have been canceled. We decided to opt-out of some as well so for the first time since 1987 we will not be participating in any major in-person art shows. We may send to exhibitions in museums and galleries as they are planned so please watch the website and our monthly newsletter for updates.

Our Special Offer is ongoing again this month and being updated as works sell. (See Below). We're sending new paintings to Exquisite Miniatures in August to augment the exhibition with extra works to replace those that recently sold as well as to put some new and more recent works into the tour.  We hope you get a chance to see this amazing exhibition if it comes to your area.

We recently celebrated Rachelle's 50th birthday and plan to escape to our kayaks soon to enjoy our 30th wedding anniversary this month. The weather is not conducive to go camping for isolation, unfortunately.

Wes recently found this photo of him circa 1987 working with colored pencils on a college project.  Time does fly when you're having fun!
Our 2020 Special Offer is still online with available paintings being sold first-come, first-served. Just email us to make a purchase. We have updated the price list to indicate sold works. We are attempting to frame as many of the paintings as our inventory allows and will confirm this with you when you inquire. Prices include the framing when available and shipping. Thanks so much to those who are currently enjoying their recently acquired works! The price list is included inside the folder or may be requested from us via email. Here are some that remain available:
