Having a Blast

Spent much of today working on art! Here are the latest pieces, followed by cards I’ve received recently. I got a little wild with the monoprints, inspired by Kathie M. from Colorado (see below). I even found my old little plexiglas plate from when I took printmaking in about 1987.

Two More

Next week is grandchild week, this week is winding down, and I’m wrapping up a period both productive and restful. Before I go back into granny mode, here are two more pieces I really like. “Booklove” is going to the Lackman Library in Lenexa, Kansas, for an exhibit of post card art celebrating books and reading. I realize the quote will elicit giggles from middle-schoolers; so be it.

“Floats and Flipflops” wraps up the series of summer cards. Maybe it’s time to start planning for Christmas.
