2013 DESK CALENDARS - Great gift

Every year I make a calendar that shows 12 of my paintings completed throughout the year. Last year I didn't get around to creating a calendar and I had several people mention to me they missed not getting one. So here is the 2013 Desk Calendar. Each month shows a different image. Above are images of the cover, January, February and March, 2013. It is in easel format and is only 3.75" high and 8.75" long. It doesn't take up much room so it is perfect for a desk calendar.

The image on the cover is Cedars Watching Sunset, 20X40 oil on linen, now available at Carolina Creations in New Bern. The image for January is Egret at Marsh, 30X40 acrylic on linen, available at Anthm Gallery in Black Mountain, NC. The painting used in February is Seeking Atlantis, 18X24 oil on linen (sold). An the copy of the painting used in March is Reflections, 18X24, acrylic on linen, sold.

TO ORDER A CALENDAR, you can click on the image of the calendar and my Contact page on my website will pop up. From there you can click the BUY IT button. The price is $10, and includes the shipping and tax. It is secure check-out through PayPal. You do not have to have a Paypal account to pay. You enter your credit/debit card information. There is a slight savings when ordering more than one. If you live in the Mebane, NC, area, you are welcome to stop by my studio and pick up your calendar. Call before coming to make sure I am home. 919-260-9889.
