Art in the Mail

I just received this card from my Mom.  She always finds the prettiest greetings and note cards at the Artist's Co-op in Halfway, Oregon - a little shop near her home.  Anyway, this beautiful pen and ink card showed up yesterday in my mailbox.

The artist is Minden Wreden, a local of Halfway, Oregon who creates not only drawings like the one above, but also watercolors, sculptures and mosaics.  I loved this little sketch so much not only for its beauty and detail, but also for its simplicity.  I also love the watercolor below - I snagged it from her website.

To contact Minden about her work or to order prints, 
email her at

Yes, yes.......not only a lovely artist, but a lovely woman. I especially like her mosaic work. She is from an incredibly creative family of artists.
