Artful Living

old friends

Holiday Illustration 2003 from Albert de Monaco – Illustration: Fabrice Monaci
There is nothing better in life than that of old friends.  Above is an illustration, an old Holiday greeting of Monaco from Prince Albert.  My husband grew up in Monaco and has been friends with Prince Albert for many years.  Visiting old friends is like returning to a special place and time.

I saved this illustration of Monaco because I loved the writing superimposed on top along with the images set in a montage format.   The Holidays are coming soon as I gather my inspiration for many commissions for holiday artwork to use as cards.  Sending greetings to new and old friends in far away places is a way to stay in touch, even if it is only once a year.
