July Blue Postcard

I just realized I never posted a photo of my July postcard, which had a blue theme. Maybe that's because it wasn't one of my favorites. But it's kinda cool, and in the interest of record-keeping:

I just painted and stamped the background, then printed the raven image onto a transparency and burned its edges with a candle. It wasn't easy to get it fastened down, as the heat made it buckle, but they made it through the mail just fine.

Rainbow Collage with My Handpainted Papers

I don't know where this idea came from, but I figured I needed to use all the background papers I've been painting, so I just cut 2-inch squares and arranged them in rainbow order from the top left to the bottom right of a canvas, "et voila!" This piece is 18 x 24 inches.

Here are some close-ups:

This will now hang in my daughter and her boyfriend's apartment, right above their giant TV. It reminds me of giant TV screen pixels!
