Asian

The Orient is the theme for this week's Sunday Postcard Art Challenge.  



I love Asian art and wanted to incorporate a few of the most common elements in traditional painting.  Fun! 

The central figure is one I scanned from a library book on (what else?) Asian art.  It was published in 1923. 

Thanks for the challenge and thanks for looking!

Circles


Circles is the theme at Sunday Postcard Art Challenge.  


I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round.
I really love to watch them roll.
No longer riding on the merry-go-round.
I just had to let it go. 
I just had to let it go.

Zetti Inspired

Zetti is the theme for this week's Sunday Postcard Art Challenge.  I love Zetti art, so it was great fun making this little zetti-girl!



I'm a fan of mixed-media artist Teesha Moore, who is credited with developing the zetti style.  Her characters often have winged bodies, pointy hats, and oddly-developed body parts. 

Note: I tried, in vain, to find the source for this great quote.

Rulers

This week's challenge at Sunday Postcard Art was a challenge, for sure: tape measure/ ruler. 


I took the theme quite literally and did what I enjoy doing most - experimenting! 

Thanks for the challenge and for stopping by.

New Direction

For this week's Sunday Postcard Art Challenge: New  



Who knows what new directions 2017 will bring?  I can't wait to turn the pages to find out! 

I clipped the central figure from a vintage fashion magazine.  Then digitally updated her look a bit with make-up, a new dress, and hat.
