POSTCARDS FOR MAY

Two postcards going out today - one going to a sunny state, another going out of the country (hope it makes it!).



I put copper leaf on the front and where it didn't stick, it looked like a kangaroo.  So I added some things and painted in the kangaroo (after adding some texture medium to the shape to make it stand out a bit). 

On the back, I painted more texture medium and then color and liquid graphite to carve the hills you'd see in the Australian Outback. 













The second postcard was a saying copied from a stamped card a friend in watercolor class (thanks, Carol!) gave me year's ago (I never throw away something artful). 






I kept this one pretty simple with delicate colors.



I also added a sticker I got years ago (told you, I never throw something artful out) from Margaret

I then drew the wings so it flies to its destination!

















I'm working on 2 full sheet paintings, trying to get a couple of Caw Girls to enter in the upcoming Cincinnati Art Club's Viewpoint juried show.  Not having anything ready to enter is putting some pressure on me and I may not even do it this year.  We'll see how these 2 paintings work out.  And tomorrow (rain or shine), I'm going to drive over to Indiana to visit with Deb and Sharon and share all the neat stuff I learned in Myrna's workshop recently - and paint together, too, if there's time.

What a fun post, Rhonda. You always have exciting art goings on in your life. It takes me weeks to finish one painting.

Sherry, these are so small and easy to do - just get them in the mail and hope for the best!
