I am still trying to decide, if I maybe should have stopped painting, about an hour before I actually did.
What do you think?
I started out, planning to do some collage. But I started dripping paint everywhere, and got carried away. It does not show in the photo, but the fish are metallic, so they really stand out. I placed them in a 2 inch mat, and they look great! Unfortunately I am not sending them matted. Just a postcard. And a book mark for each of this months birthday gals.
These are for the Milliande Birthday Postcard Swap. If you are an artist, or just interested in seeing some great art, visit the site. There are tutorials, and many groups to join. Members are from all over the world. There is also a gallery, and you can post your art and even get great feedback. These postcards are on their way to Minneapolis Minnesota, Katy Texas, and Lompoc California. i used watercolor, gouache, acrylic and pen. The woman in the second card, does not really fit in with the theme, she just kind of showed up in the drips and splotches.
If you would like to see some really fabulous postcards, you have to visit Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Their collection has over 20,000 postcards available for viewing. Amazing Art!!! And you can even send epostcards, and learn a little about the history of the postcard.
