This gem of a river is located in our Midcoast Maine backyard. Vibrant purple, peach, and teal ink captures the beauty of twilight as the sun silhouettes trees.

The artist credited for the image is Jane Berry Judson circa 1908 who graduated from Pratt Institute in 1904. While researching the artist, we came across a blog titled "The Blue Lantern: Arts Journalism for the Love of It."

There's a write-up regarding Judson's work, and a good point made about the composition of this image is as follows:

"Trees in Judson's works are real, they are individually rendered; [we] believe that they existed, that we are seeing what she saw."

The glowing line where the setting sun meets the tree line on the riverbank is a reminder of the artist's legacy. It will not fade if reproductions are made and her story is told. 

This card is a store favorite.

Saturn Press is an eco-concious company based on Swan's Island off the Maine coast. A married couple works together to make this international business happen. (Jane Goodrich creates the designs, James vanPernis runs the company's 4 antique printing presses, and a sweet gal named Kathy who used to answer the phone recently retired.)

Using an old-fashioned letterpress technique, paper sourced from a sustainable family-run mill, and a love for what they do, Saturn Press creates striking cards that will make a lasting impression no matter who the recipient.

Some folks love the vivid colors and unique images so much they request cards without envelopes to frame and hang them as wall art.
