Fireflies and Memory art card is digitally printed using archival pigment inks on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. Folded card is 5.25" by 5.25" and comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The drumstick allium photograph I used to create the background for this art piece is printed on the back of the card with the photo location. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. This card carries misty memories of a childhood spent watching fireflies rise on my grandfather's farm in southeastern Ohio. It's both celebration and lament, as described in my post introducing this piece. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.
Framing. This art card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.
Postage. Because irregularly shaped mail, like this square card, must be canceled by hand, the U.S. Postal Service requires extra postage to deliver them. Special "butterfly stamps" carry the exact right postage to mail your bee card within the U.S. If you would like me to stamp the envelope with a butterfly stamp so it's ready for you to mail, please choose that option from the menu.
About the Art. This art piece was inspired by an extraordinary flush of fireflies on my property, Yellow Bird's Rest, during the summer of 2022. Fireflies rose from the ground and my garden in the thousands, dancing up into the trees from late June all the way through to early August, when the evening temperatures cooled and the show finally blinked out. You can read more about the emotions expressed in this piece in my post introducing it.
