Forget the mall, support your local artists…art makes a great gift

If you’re on the lookout for fabulous and unique presents for you loved ones, forget the shopping mall; consider art. Artists need your support, and art makes wonderful gifts.

I love being abe to support artists in my community.  I bought this  beautiful piece by Stephen Miller for a birthday gift.

Stephen uses ultra thin wood veneers to create his gorgeous pictures.  In this case, he used Black Walnut, Maple, Koa, Beech, Cherry, Arbutus, Bubinga, Dyed Koto, Dyed Anegre, Crotch, Honduras and Philippine Mahogany.  He also made the frame which is solid wood and lovely.

    Wow! That is so beautiful. Thank you for showing it to us — the person who receives it will be delighted, I know! And thank you for this important reminder to support local artists. Well said.
