You’ve Got Mail: Thank You sketches and more

When friends and relatives are generous with a gift, whether on a birthday, holiday, after a move into a new home or other special occasions, then I try to show our appreciation by drawing on a Thank You note. I am including some examples from the past and present. Most compositions are original though sometimes I use a familiar image e.g. the Morton salt girl, or reference some art, e.g. Picasso’s Seated Woman in Red Armchair and Bernini’s fountain in Rome.

People may be the object of my drawing if a significant birthday is about to happen, some one close to me is changing jobs or retiring, or the person was helpful to a stranger.

And then there are the whimsical notes dealing with animals I have known. There is a story behind each one of these notes…perhaps another time.
