Argus Studio Art

 

We are excited to present to you another part of our vision for It's So Very Cheri. It is our desire to offer great pieces that are beautiful and affordable.

The first pieces we are presenting are those of Cheri's father, Argus Childers. Argus remembers, the first time he picked up a pencil and drew something, around 2 years of age, and that he wanted to draw for the rest of his life. Argus graduated with an art degree and worked in the advertising field before moving his family to the Kansas City area, where he began his career at Hallmark Cards. He stayed at Hallmark until his retirement a few years ago. He still continues to do art in his spare time-WHAT, spare time, you say-he's retired. Oh, he means when he's not playing with his grandchildren or fishing.

Each piece of Argus Studio Art, will be numbered and signed. The "pen and ink" drawings will have a limited run of 100. Want a better look? Just click on the photo and it will enlarge the picture. The size of the piece is listed directly under that piece of art work. Each of Argus' pieces are $25. Shipping is $7 and is sent priority mail. So, "if you care enough to buy the very best" and want to know how to purchase a piece, just click on the button below that picture. Your art work will come to you without the It's So Very Cheri watermark stamp, on the art. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Florida residents will need to add a 6% tax. Contact me for a price including the tax.

Cheri - GREAT artwork by your dad! Are those places in K.C. or just his imagination?? I love new things so I WILL check back often! Hope you're doing well ~

Those are places from all over the country, some are from the KC area though. The beach, seagull, lighthouse and palm tree type scenes are not KC-heehee
