The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Postcard Sketches

Here are a couple of small sketches I did recently---I like to doodle on to postcards, then I can send them to someone...



these two will probably go to a friend who is recovering from an illness...I like the idea of sending my art out into the world for free...and who knows where it ends up?  maybe it graces someone's fridge for awhile? or it is used as a bookmark? once sent out into the wide world, the art then has a life of its own....

"I am an artist who, for forty years
Has stood at the lake edge
Throwing stones in the lake,
Sometimes, very faintly,
I hear a splash."  ---Maxwell Bates

Lovely cards - and bound to cheer up anyone who receives them. Hope your friend gets well soon.

great postcards! I'm like you, I love just making up a few postcards and throwing them in the mail to random friends. I imagine how it would make me smile to get unexpected mail and hope they smile as well. While any mail (besides bills) is awesome to get there is something totally different than all other mail when it's handmade. It's like there's MORE thought and love that goes into it.
