Kathleen, this IS wonderful! Thanks for sharing this artist! WOW, what fun! Some people are just so imaginative!

tina

Very pretty. Maybe you can cut the pictures out and save them in a photo album or something? Frame them even? I find it hard to throw calendars away too.

Racquel

What a whimsical calender! Combining cats & gardening is a great idea. I don't blame you for not wanting to toss it. Maybe you could frame up some of your favorites?

Kathleen, I know what you mean...I have several calendars with delightful prints that I keep...maybe someday I will have a large budget for framing some of them! I totally admire this artists ability to capture so many delightful details...without it being overwhelmingly cluttered. gail

I've loved his prints forever. He's done lots of quirky cats. I used to have the cat on the bookshelf. That is a great one, well maybe it looks familiar to me because that's how my shed looks;)

That is very cute. I love those type of prints, where you can just keep looking at all the details that were put in. I'm not sure if I've seen his before, but I do like that style.

Kathleen

I know Nicole ~ it's incredible, isn't it? He is very talented.

Kathleen

We think alike Tina! I did frame one "Remington the Horticulturist" print and have that in my office. It's some consolation for having to recycle the calendars.

Kathleen

Cats & gardening just go together, don't they Racquel? Almost every gardener I know has a cat. It's so interesting!

Kathleen

You hit the nail on the head Gail! It is very detailed but not distractingly so. I'd love to be able to duplicate that style....

Kathleen

I thought you would be into him Marnie ~ I don't know why ~ I just had a feeling! If your shed looks like that, I'd love to come over and just sit in it and stare around for a while!!! :-)

Kathleen

Me too Catherine. It can keep you immersed for quite some time if you allow it.

Shady Gardener

Why wouldn't you frame this photo?? It's very cute and YOU love it! :-)

I'm nuts about Wysocki. I have many of his New England pictures. One of my favorite in my series is Dancing Pheasant Farms. There are hundreds of pumpkins in that picture.

I have Love Letters from Laramie, Fun Loving Silly Folks, His 4 season light house series, Hickory Haven Canal, Bostonians and Beans, and some of his sea captain wives series.

In his New England pictures, he puts a flag and heart in every picture. He has passed now and his family is selling the last of his prints. They are worth a good bit now. Hang on to all you have for the love of his work and their value.

Kathleen

Hi Anna. I'm happy to have found another fan of Charles Wysocki! I am not as familiar with your favorites ~ I seem to gravitate toward the cats & garden theme prints but I'm definitely holding on to them. Thanks for the great comment.

Kathleen

The perfect reasons! Thanks Shady Gardener.
