Art Card Original " Flow"

The first finished piece from the "Art Card Window"

If you go to that post, see if you can find which larger piece I took it from.

Like the back of the old Batman trading cards!

Some Unfinished works of the recent past . . .

The gray piece is older with new embellishments.  the other three are new ink on paper with some color pencil.  "New" meaning mid-September.  The pile of paper on the right are mostly unfinished stuff throught the past 4-5 years. 
It is like building up and building up and sometimes finding the mosaic that can stand alone!

Drama Brew

Created in the past few days.  Been dealing with some back pain and serious financial issues, but still have to make art:
It is 4 x 6 on gray, acid-free card stock with black and white archival ink markers and graphite pencil.

Study, or just a sketchy doodley

I drew this at the opening reception of my art show on July 24th while waiting for the first people to show up.  It is in my smallest sketchbook and is only 3.5" x 5.5"

The Art Card Window

I recently made a card-stock piece with a rectangular hole cut out, so I can view old, busy, unfinished works to turn into art cards.  Then I just mark the image with a pencil.  
Look!  I have 10 new starts of Art cards and they are all originals!
And the scrap from around them can be used in collage and Mail art!
Recycling never looked so good!  If you know how to see the smaller images larger, you will notice that I have "outlined" ten potential new art cards on the 3 images!!
the "art card window" in action!
