Bye Bye Blackbird
One of the challenges posted at my art group this month, asked that we create a postcard with a crow. My interpretation began with a piece of hand-colored paper and my silhouette of a raven. To be honest, I'd no idea where this was going when I began this postcard; but, the serendipitous result has a definite, albeit unintentional, party-like feel.
Using hand-colored paper for the background on my postcard, created a desire for more. These papers began with waste card stock covered with dabs and dollops of paint from my brushes and intermittent doodles from my pens. I used Golden fluid acrylics, Neocolors, acrylic inks, paint pens, acrylic paints, etc. to create them.
Please feel free to use these papers (they're approximately 8"x10") in your personal artwork. Use them as they are, or crop an ATC. They're my little gift to you attached with happy wishes for an artful week.
