Meanwhile, last Fall my friend, Nancy, and I decided to participate in an Artist Trading Card Exhibition at Richmond Art Gallery. The exhibit was in Richmond, British Columbia, and the cards were on display from September 18 through October 30, 2009.
We each submitted 9 cards that we had made, and we asked to have them traded rather than get our own back. Time went by and we both forgot all about it. Then we each got an email that said there was only one person working on doing the trades and sending them all out .... and, that there were over 300 participants! No wonder it took awhile. Thank you so much, Kathy!
Here are the cards I received:
I may have told you that I am involved in a 6 x 6 two page spread exchange through one of my Yahoo! groups. The theme of this one was "wish upon a star" and here is what I sent. I can show you now because she has received them.
The ones I am working on now have a theme of "ladies vintage hats/hairdos". Once they are received, I will show them to you.
I had my son and his daughter overnight last evening and she bought her stuffed dog, Puppers. She saw the picture of my youngest granddaughter and wanted to pose similar to that to have her picture taken.
It is too bad her eyes aren't wide open; this child has the most beautiful eyes! It was fun to have her stay overnight. I don't see her as often as I see my daughter's girls.
I am spending way too much time watching the Australian Open these days. I have been doing crossword puzzles while doing so; maybe I need to take my sketch book out and try to do some gesture drawing.
Hope to have more art to share tomorrow.
