Artist Trading Cards

Recently, I was invited (well, rather invited myself) to join an Artist Trading Card (ATC) exchange. The purpose of this exchange is to share a small piece of art with a fellow artist and, in return, they share a piece with you.

The standard ATC size is around 2.5 x 3.5 inches. This is small for me. I prefer working in the 11 x 14  to 16 x 20 range. I enjoy a challenge and getting involved in a project such as this is quite motivating for me.

This past week, between working full time and other things demanding my time and attention, I was able to churn out 3 of these miniature works. I worked with ink stains, acrylics, gesso, charcoal, ephemera, and molding paste on canvas paper. My goal was to create fun, whimsical pieces. Here are a few examples of some of what I'm working on thus far.

I recently received my 1st ATC from a dear old friend (going back to 3rd grade!). Her substrate was a small wooden panel. I think I shall borrow that technique on future endeavors. I love her loose work, and bold use of color. And being a Kansas girl, myself...I can't help but be drawn to a subject matter dear and near to my heart: Sunflowers! Thank you, Chris!
