I'm in the process of narrowing down images for new cards (again) Needed urgently now that I've completely sold out of one of my cards and Open Studios are coming up fast.

The following two are new prints.
How wide an appeal do you think they might have a greetings cards? Seeing as quite a lot of my outlets are on the coast, it might be a good choice.

Like them both, especially for coastal type outlets, if it has to be one or the other then the first is slightly more eyecatching

I do;







and 24 swans, which is on my shortlist



It's really difficult to decide because some people like cats, others birds, some want colourful cards, and others really like my 'grey' palette.

I like the coloured stuff best - the grey palette pieces I can appreciate technically; but they don't grab me in the same way that your coloured work does. I am a bit of a magpie, though - a red coat with a purple hat that doesn't match sort of person.

As a buyer I would send the coloured ones, but I would mount and frame the grey ones and keep them for myself

Wow, EV, they're lovely. I like all the oystercatcher colours, and I really love the avocets.
