Kitty Herman and I did a personal swap - one 4x6 and 6 ATCs. What a haul I got..... this is one talented artist!! Every time I looked at the next piece, I was floored.
Here is the 4x6
It is the view she has each morning as her cat wakes her up to ask for breakfast. Such an unusual look - so very creative. Charcoal.
On to the incredible ATCs
for my request for mushrooms. Kitty claims she is new at watercolors. Sooooo hard to believe. This is a stunning piece of work in the medium.
for my pet rat theme. I have had 3 awesome pet rats in my life. Kitty has also experienced the joy of loving pet rats. So good to hear when someone else understands that they are clean, loving, and clever, not the nasty creatures many folks make them out to be. I love this card. He is adorable.
For my "birth year" theme.... (1963). The Beatles were big. Here is a very very funny pencil depiction of the madness.... Ya gotta luv the Ringo fan....!
I had both daisies and ladybugs on my list. Here is a sweet combo of them. Makes me all happy inside just to look at it.
For my red fox theme. They are such gorgeous creatures. I cry when I see them dead in the road. Here is one titled "Alone but not lonely". He is being kept silent company by a couple of chummy shrooms.
Lastly, on my ivy theme...
Yes, the leaves are real and somehow Kitty managed to treat them so they would arrive looking like they had just been picked. Some very cool background on this card, too.
Kitty Herman, you are THE BOMB. I couldn't possibly be happier with every single piece you made for me. Obviously you worked very very hard to cater to my wishes. I would trade with you again in a heartbeat.
