It is always a big question to me of what to do with my ever growing paintings? Some are good overall,some turn out good in certain areas only.So I have found a way of reducing my paintings ,by cutting them( croping?) physically and paste them on my personal letterhead.I send all my informal notes on such letterheads! All my friends love a piece of fresh landscape stuck on the note!



I also crop them to make smaller frames for gifts.They workout economical and i can utilise my good part of the paintings.I am postong two such images,Approx. 4x 6 inches , but framed in glass,(you can see i couldnot avoid a flash reflection in photos!) which i have gifted to dear ones.

The amount you paint it doesn't surprise me that you have so many paintings, and what a fantastic idea to use them for notes.

PS I was given an award which I have passed on to you !!! You can pass it on to others or not, please don't feel pressure to do anything.

I am a regular beneficiary of such notes but was unaware that they were crops from a larger painting! I was about to ask you this question of how do you store so many paintings you keep doing!

Great idea. I sometimes do that also. You need to start selling your paintings online too. Nice examples.
