I just discovered something wonderful. I looked closely at a barren tree branch outside my window and noticed buds just waiting to open! Hope.
My gallery is budding, too, right at the end of January. I'm releasing three prints this week!
And I'm giving my most loyal collectors -- only you on my email notification list -- introductory prices on these new releases through Presidents Day weekend.
This is an unadvertised "Thank you" to you who keep up with my work and support my gallery all year, even through the long, cold, sparse months of winter at this summer resort. To get the introductory prices when you come in or call, you must mention you got this email. We won't ask, the introductory prices aren't posted anywhere in the gallery or on the website, and anyone else buying the prints will pay full price -- including you if you don't mention it!
The paintings, shown at top, left to right, are Twilight, Peace and Eventide. You can see larger images by going to http://www.ellenrice.com/newpaintings.php and clicking on the name under each image. The prices and sizes aren't up on my website yet, but here they are.
SIZES AND PRICES
Peace, the largest, most attention getting of the three paintings and larger in its standard giclée size than most, is available in two sizes and mediums. The IMAGE sizes are 22 inches by 18 inches plus margins on paper in an edition of 100 for $300 ($250 to you until Feb. 18) and 28 x 23 on canvas in a very limited edition of 20 for $1000 ($900 until Feb. 18). Embellishing with oils on the canvas edition is $400 extra.
Both Eventide and Twilight are available 14 x 11 plus margins on paper for $150 ($125 to you until Feb. 18) in editions of 100.
These signed, numbered reproductions are all the same quality archival giclées you're accustomed to receiving from me. In fact, the reproductions with my new printing equipment are the best I've ever been able to produce. I absolutely love the way the colors in the skies turned out.
So if you're in the mood for a change of pace from the winter doldrums, crave a beach walk or cozy Superbowl or Presidents Day weekend getaway and would like to see my budding gallery's newest editions, please stop by and see us! If you can't get away, just give us a call at 302-539-3405 or toll-free 888-ELL-RICE to be among the first to own one of these paintings. And don't forget to mention you got this email!
And think of this ... as of yesterday, it's less than two months until spring!
P.S. Please note winter hours are still in effect. Fri., Sat., Mon. 10-5, Sun. 10-4 EST. We check messages and return calls every day though. Hope to see you!
