The 2018 calendar motifs

Eight years ago, I conceived of the first version of this calendar as a gift for family and friends with the intention that throughout the year, they'd have a bit of art and beauty as they worked at their desk. I'm delighted that so many of you now share in this habit, sharing a token of friendship and admiration that can be enjoyed all year long. Our limited edition easel desk calendars have become signature gifts for many of our gracious clients who give presentation sets initially, and then thoughtfully give refill folios or calendar cards 'a la carte' year after year. 

The calendar itself consists of 12 individual cards beautifully printed on fine archival cardstock, each topped with a different jewel-like watercolor painting from our library of original works. On the reverse of each card is a short description of the objet d'art depicted in the painting. The calendar sits elegantly on solid brass easels, and is perfectly suited for your well-appointed writing desk.
