CSArts have been popping up all over the country and work in much the same way as CSA's --with customers receiving orginal fine art rather than fruits or veggies.
I am halfway through my first CSArt project: A Year of Flowers, and just finished these lovely peonies in shades of pink and cream.
Folks purchased a "share of art" back in the spring (at a 50% savings off of retail). Over the year, they will recieve 6 original oil paintings, each depicting a different seasonal flower. So far, they've been treated to tulips, iris & peonies. The challenge for me is which flowers to choose, only 3 more to go!
I'll give one hint--I see some sunflowers in their future.
Stay tuned for next year...
I will be offering two CSArts next year. Another Year of Flowers (It will take me a while to get through them all) and Backyard Chickens.
Here's a little look at some of the paintings my CSArt clients have received so far this year...
