I have some great news!! One of my Decatur inspired paintings was selected to be a City of Decatur Postcard!! A jury of local artists and community leaders selected several designs of Decatur for a set of classic "tourist-style" postcards! One of my three designs was selected for the postcard set!
The cards are being printed right now and will be ready for launch in May at the 2014 Decatur Arts Festival. They will also be ready in time for the grand opening of the Decatur Welcome Center in the DeKalb History Center, Old Courthouse on the Square.
The proceeds from the sale of the postcards go to the Decatur Arts Alliance.
Here are my three designs..the last one is the design the committee selected!
2. The second postcard design is the famous gazebo that can be found in the Decatur Square.
3. The third, and winning, postcard is a realistic design of the illustrated Decatur Logo. You can find the Decatur Logo here. I can't wait to see what the actual Decatur Postcard looks like!!
