Each Christmas, one of the requests at the top of my “wishing for” list is an Esther Clark calendar for the upcoming year. Esther’s botanical art is beautiful and delicate – to me, it captures the essence of the plants and flowers she is sketching, and I look forward to the turning of the calendar’s pages to reveal each month’s artwork.
At the end of the year, I can’t bear to recycle such wonderful art, but I don’t want it to just gather dust in a drawer, either, so what to do with it? I decided to create a rustic leather portfolio that keeps the art clean and safe, but allows me to flip through the pages. And, with the leather ties as binding, I can add calendar pages from subsequent years until I have an entire book of botanical art.Pin It
