Purple Puffs

                                                     Purple Puff

                                                     Purple Puff II

ATC's both different mixed mediums created on excess paint and marker on blank newsprint paper. Purple Puff II has a thin coating of gesso to mute the background with some journalling. Each different yet with the same subject which was held in one hand as the other drew it onto the surface. I used gel pens on both but notice the difference on the gesso. Both ATC's will be traded on FineArtsATC Yahoo! Group.

Experimenting:    Using gesso to give texture to the ATC 'over' the artwork instead of acrylic paint....

American Born

ATC - American Born
Flair Marker on Acrylic background

Being true to yourself, living your life according to your God given gifts is one of the most fulfilling rewards I could have ever hoped for. The rooster is one of my favorite subjects to place on the blank canvas. I can be in a rut, a place where I feel stuck and with an object in my hand, a pen, a pencil, a paint brush, I can slip out of the abyss. With just a few scratches or strokes on the article in front of me, the transformation is visible.

The background of this ATC was created a few months ago...yet today, my feathered friend appeared.
