This card is from an original watercolor, by me, DS Irvin, titled "A Friendly Glass of Claret" which pictures two socially minded pink poodles enjoying a conversation over a fine bottle of Claret wine.
Most of my cards come with a small story, written at the time the original artwork is created. This is printed on the backs of the cards, along with the title of the piece and date it was created. They are hand signed "DS Irvin" which is how I sign my original prints and artwork and are hand numbered. This is #5. The story for this artwork reads: "One can't be certain if this is the first bottle of Claret these two happy Pink Poodles have ordered at this sidewalk cafe. They have just come back from the salon where they enjoyed a fresh clipping and dye job with gold overtones. There is some certainty that the conversation is going so well that another following bottle may be in order."
This ACEO (which stands for Art Cards, Editions & Originals) measures the standard 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" and is laminated. I choose to laminate cards which are prints and don't include any hand enhancing or painting as it makes them far more durable, increasing their longevity, and enriches the colors.
This card was printed with a color laser printer on acid free cover stock. The ghosted watermark does not appear on the actual print.
