Fighting the Blues

Sunflower 2014
Winter is around the corner and the forecast calls for snow showers this weekend. While admiring the beautiful colors of the Fall leaves, my struggle with the Blues begin. 
I find myself drawing more and more sunflowers to lift my spirits. This was a quick ATC that I scraped up and gave it away as a surprise raffle at one of my community meetings.
The sunflower and leaves are drawn on deli-paper. The background was part of a larger mixed media board that I had worked on previously. It contains fragments of printed tissue papers I made, scraps from cutouts, stampings, acrylic paint and some stenciling.

The winner of the raffle was tickled pink and will be searching for a small frame for it.

Sweet taste of Art...

Bird ATC Mingle with Envelope...
Even though I haven't posted in a while, I am creating in the mist of life events. The Yahoo! Group: ATC_Fun, has these swaps as one on one's, in which the artist creates an ATC and decorates an envelope(does not have to match). The participant gets two pieces of art for the price of one.

These ATC Mingles are themed. I have participated in almost all of them. I am currently working on an 'Under the Sea' ATC Mingle as well!
