Artful Prints from Reverend Michael Alan

A Thoughtful Way to Remember the Day

reverend michael alan!

You’ve yet to find a meaningful present on Sis’s mile-long registry of bath towels and kitchenware. (Nothing says “I love you” quite like Tupperware.)

Let her know she’s dear by presenting her and hubby with a personalized wedding certificate from Reverend Michael Alan. (No nuptials on the calendar? Mark life’s other milestones with birth announcements or family trees.)

Drawn to local lore, the Reverend adds hex signs, flowers, and other touches lifted from Pennsylvania Dutch folk art to each piece. If the work looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen his whimsical illustrations on bottles of Art in the Age’s Root and Snap (personally we’re suckers for a liquor that looks as good as it tastes).

Pick a template for him to customize, or he’ll design something from scratch, incorporating symbols and astrological info. In four to six weeks, you’ll get a watercolor and ink masterpiece.

Amen to that.
