started this 7-8 years ago while visiting friend in C'ville on 12 x 12 acid-free cardstock.  it sat in my pile of unfinished works for years, then I trimmed it down to 8.5 x 11.  Finally decided it was done on July 8th.     It is Acrylic paint, ink, pencil and color pencil.

Funky Beats of Life

This was done around the 4th of July.  It is postcard sized (6 in. x 4 in.) watercolor, pencil, ink, and some color pencil on thick watercolor paper.  Gotta do more of these and send to artist friends!  If you want an original Ralf work via postcard, either comment here or on the Facebook post that linked this or msg me on FB.

Skull ACEO

(c) Ralf Schulze
One of the art cards in a big batch started in April.       Really didn't do anything else to this.
ACEO is "Art Cards, Editions & Originals". The size is only 2.5" x 3.5" (same size as a baseball card!)  Mine are always originals.

This is only watercolor and ink on thick watercolor paper.

 My old friend in Florida sent me this scan of one of my pieces I gave him back around end of college days.
And guess what, it is 8.5 x 11 with acrylic, ink and color pencil!  The size and media I've always been into!

... and The Holy Ghost

(c) Ralf Schulze
Been creating these Ink and color pencil only pieces in a "cross/plus-sign" composition lately and this is one of my favorites!
I am not religious in any usual way, but always am open minded and think that our human existence is the most profound thing in this world.  Not to mention that the Golden Rule is always the best idea.

I also believe that if YOU are offended, That is your personal issue, not the offender's.

This was created earlier this year, Probably  around February.
