Custom Mailbox...



I was commissioned to do a custom mailbox for a client that would mount on a post by her front door...I knew that I wanted a fairly large mailbox that would hold a magazine without it having to be folded or rolled...I found this great mailbox that had a nice working surface and will accommodate a magazine. When I opened the box I was so pleasantly surprised to find a panel inside that inserted into the channels of the mailbox (the panel was burgundy on one side and blue on the other..giving the buyer a choice of colors) But, this just sung to me!! First I only had to deal with the panel while painting which was far less cumbersome than the entire mailbox...and second, although the client had asked for a floral/summery painting, (seeing as we do live in upstate NY) it gave me the opportunity to add a little whimsy for the fall and winter also (an added extra bonus of my choosing!) So here is the final piece...from the blank to the summer to the fall....Personally it looks like a great piece of art for her house!! ENJOY!
If you are looking for a custom piece for yourself or someone else...E-Mail me...we can chat!!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

The design and inserts on the mailbox are creative genius! Your work will uplift the entire neighborhood, not to mention putting a large smile on the post-person(s) face as they deliver to that address every day! I think you need to design a new series of stamps!

Thank you for your heart felt messages...I will let you know that the mailbox was WELL RECEIVED by the client and I am extremely happy to say that it will be be mounted on a post and placed in her garden by her front door...not only as a functioning mailbox but also as a piece of art....
I am overjoyed!!
