Greeting Cards

card w envelope

Desert Dada greeting cards are all from original paintings by Carolyn Schmitz.  

The cards are blank inside.  The back of each card carries a description of the plants and animals featured in the painting.  

A coyote peers beguilingly from the shadow of her spring hat–a jumble of blooming cacti and wildflowers. Blackfoot daisies, southwest coral bean, prickly poppy, yucca blooms, and dangling mesquite pods are fancied up with a snakeskin bow and velvet “ant”. Her necklaces are milkweed stems with sage leaves, and a desert checkered skipper poised on a string of creosote pods.
