Slow Miracle Art Store
Welcome to my Slow Miracle Art Store page! I’ve created an assorted 5 pack of art quality greeting cards from the illustrations my readers have enjoyed in my blog posts, and added a couple of seasonal paintings as well. I hope you like the cards. You can write your own messages inside, and spread the Slow Miracle sense of wonder with those you love.
I Love You Cards
These cards are perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any other day you want to say “I love you” to someone special in your life. Includes:
“Pomegranate Heart” card:
Mixed Media drawing by Maria Theresa Maggi. Goes with the post “Be My Valentine?”
“Scenes from a Valentine’s Day” card:
Mixed Media Drawing and original poem by Maria Theresa Maggi. Goes with the blog post “Be My Valentine?” and any other post in which I mention my poetry chapbook If A Sparrow or Romeo. Here’s the complete text of the sonnet, “Scenes from a Valentine’s Day” by Maria Theresa Maggi, which appears on the front of the card:
Scenes from a Valentine’s Day
Romeo, my four-legged Valentine,
focuses on a clump of dead leaves
with the olfactory equivalent
of a microscope, while over us
the sky has opened to sun, then turned gray,
and now a few flakes of snow flutter
in the air that shifts its color with the clouds.
We’re on the edge of campus; a young man
in black sweats crosses our path, his arms full
of red roses wrapped in red paper.
The snow falls but doesn’t stick yet;
the sky is that color of milk hinting
a storm might come, its wide mouth agape,
as if opening to a deep kiss.
“Yours for the Picking” card:
Mixed Media Drawing by Maria Theresa Maggi. Goes with the blog post “Be My Valentine?”
