Winter Solstice Art Card – The Promise

$4.95$5.95

Environmental cataclysm art card is printed 5.25″ by 5.25″, a nice little size for giving, framing, or meditation. Includes envelope and free shipping. This one is for all of us, but particularly the environmental activist. If you’ll be mailing your card to someone and would like me to add the correct USPS first class stamp to the envelope, please choose that option from the menu. An additional charge will apply.

Winter solstice 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 deep purple iris 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 is a nice contemplation piece for winter, as it carries the promise of a return to shorter nights and sunnier days. Definitely welcome by anyone who actively celebrates Winter Solstice. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This winter solstice 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 winter solstice art 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. I created this mandala, titled The Promise, for a winter solstice art exhibition in December of 2019. As you no doubt know, especially if you live far north in the Northern Hemisphere or far south in the Southern, winter solstice marks the longest night of the year. It’s a time when the shadows stretch, the weather gets frosty, and the return of summer seems an impossibility. But the light always comes back. The long days of summer return. In fact, in the moment after the solstice, summer is already on its way. That’s the promise fulfilled.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
