Another batch before I pass out Smiley ... we're using the scanner for warmth  Cheesy well not me, but the cats laying on it are hehe.  I know I shouldn't throw art away  Tongue  and I really ended up liking the moon.  I'll just have a "look at another time" bin... and then mail them all to asphaltqueen hehe.

Day 43 February 12, 2008
Flying Moon.
Pencil and Watercolor.

Day 44 February 13, 2008
Garden Flowers. (I forget, I think they were sugarsnap peas)
Pencil, ink, and watercolor.

Day 45 February 14, 2008
Flower-bud Moon.
Pencil and Watercolor.

Day 46 February 15, 2008
Birds of Warmth.
pencil watercolor and ink

Day 47 February 16, 2008
Midnight Moth.
Pencil, Ink, and Watercolor.  Brown kraft paper wrapped card. *ooo 10 second memory*

whew ok.. getting closer to be caught up with scanning...

anyone else have problems with paper curling up, not bad, but just not flat?  I am pressing them under a lot of heavy books and that seems to work for most, wondering if there is anything else that would work to make them flat again.  (The water really makes the paper curve up some.)

have a good night! and thanks for stalking me Smiley (never though I'd say that!)

Wow....emm...wow....these are...amazing..fantastic...I give up. There just arent enough words to cover the coolness of your work.  Grin

Oh and I second the 'never throw anything away' suggestion - My old art teacher used to say that when you weren't sure about a piece you should set it up somewhere and walk past it for a few days, that way you will be able to better judge whether it's done or not. This always works for me, I seem to do this now without thinking about it.

I'm glad you are back ! I wish you a good recovery. Your cards are gorgeous. I love the moth, and the sugar peas, and the block print birds and the trap and the circles, and the moon... Well everything... The sugar peas are so poetic.

Wow, I missed lots in a few days! So glad to see you back to posting and glad to here you are feeling much better! I think that showing all of the stages of your cards really helps to profile you as an artist. The simpler ones (like the loops) and the fuzzy, less "illustrated" pieces are really intriguing! I just think it's great that you try to create even if you feel awful, and fabulous new things can come of it. It's inspiring!

I really appreciate all your work and dedication of a year! Your skills are quite obvious as well as your mastery of several mediums. I am attempting something similar but people-based. I work/live in a hostel and am attempting to make small portraits of our 90+ residents (turnover can be as little as 1 a month or 30). You've given me the inspiration to try harder and even post! I'll be back to see more!
