Read the text below to see how I have incorporated nostalgia and old time values with this text to sell art by a very talented primitive painter from the Blue Ridge. What could be more apt in times when nostalgia sells than a family oriented naive painter from a coal mining family? Study the international marketing strategies used.

“Theresa Isbell Gloster, born in Filbert, West Virginia at # 9 Holler, was raised with eleven brothers and sisters. Her father and grandfather are a historical generation of black coal miners and her paintings reflect this beautiful backwoods life.

Folk art reflects the ancient nature of this land and began with cave paintings when these mountains stood as solid intrusions beaten only by time. Man conquered the eras by recording visions of his past and hopes for the future in primitive art, on stone, canvas and wood.

Blue Ridge folk art reminds us that old time values still live here. Family, friends and values come alive in explosions of color and none do this better than Theresa Isbell Gloster.

The scenes Theresa brings alive in acrylic on board show as many as five children snuggled under one hand-stitched patchwork quilt. She paints life into mountain roads, pictures as momma and aunts use scrub boards or gather at quilting bees as in this charming painting.

These decorative artworks and paintings are not prints but are original Appalachian art at its finest. They make Wonderful Easter and Valentine gifts and presents.”

Incorporate values like this in anything you want to sell or if you are an investor look for businesses that do this because they are on the right track.

The next lesson shows how international marketing strategies on adventure can affect your business and investing. Until then may all your time be an adventure.
