Proceeding With Caution into 2021

My Creative Team and I (aka my mom and I) are finalizing the cost for the 2021 Desktop Calendars this year. The price for the calendar will stay the same as the last 3 years, $13.00, however, we're going to get a more accurate price for the packaging/postage tomorrow from the Post Office.

Due to not making a single profit off of the Wall Calendars, I will not be selling those. I actually lost money off of them the last several years.

I have 10 brand new paintings on this calendar and two that were made last year, but never used/seen. So essentially 12 new ones. I will let everyone know how to order, where to send the money, etc....

I am ordering only 100 (for now) and I will not be "reserving" any for anyone. Who pays first, gets first dibs on quantity. Last year, people asked for a number of calendars, then never came through to paying me.

These make perfect gifts for teenagers, coworkers, grandparents, Secret Santa gifts... etc.... Thanks for your support and loving my art, Amy

Welcome to America

My Canadian coworker, Rumi, was officially sworn in as an American on 11.20.2020 in Sioux Falls. This is my surprise painting to her as a WELCOME TO AMERICA as a gift. I had many of our wonderful cohorts sign the mat. Hand delivery will be Monday at work. This is a 16"x20" watercolor painting drawn on 11.21.2020 by Amy Susan Petrik ❤

Be Brave With Your Life

 I drew this August 2019 but didn't paint it until October 2020. 
I marked this as an error. 
But the more I looked at it, the more I loved her. 
She now hangs at my desk at work.

In The Midst of Chaos


Most days we sit side by side in the lunch room never speaking and equally exhausted. And every day, we part by wishing each other a great afternoon. @ Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Paying Forward With Kindness To Cohorts

All rights reserved. Created by Amy Susan Petrik, October 3, 2020.

Yes, I accepted the project. Yes, I volunteered my madz skills to bring forward MY KINDNESS PROJECT to the forefront. No, I am not getting anything in return but my own happiness to sharing my art with others. Thanks for looking, Amy
