If you saw yesterday’s post, you are about to have a deja vu moment!
This is because I am creating more postcards for the same local art gallery fundraiser.
Today’s postcards were created by very loosely dropping puddles of paint onto very wet paper. I didn’t know what to create for the cards today, so after the paint dried, I doodled with my sketching pen and found some subject matter within the paint swirls. They wound up being very loose little watercolor sketches.
Here is the info again on what I am doing and what it is for.
This is what is written on the Hera Gallery website:

CALL FOR ENTRIES! Postcard Fundraiser Time!
CALL FOR ENTRIES Having a Wonderful Time! Announcing the Third Annual Hera Gallery Artists’ Postcard Fundraiser
This summer, Hera will hold its third annual postcard fundraiser! We are seeking artists’ postcards created as original works of art to sell at $15 each for benefit of the gallery. Postcards will be displayed in the gallery from July 17-20, 2013. An opening reception
featuring music, food, and fun will be held on Saturday July 20, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Following the event, postcards will be permanently on sale in the gallery. Please create postcards for this event and recruit other artists to aid in this effort. You may contribute individual postcards or editions of postcards. They can be stamped and sent through the mail, put in an envelope, or delivered to the gallery. Postcards will be accepted on a rolling basis. The deadline for inclusion in the show is Friday July 12. All cards become the property of Hera Gallery. Artists are asked to sign and date the back side of the postcard and to include any information they would like to make available: a message, contact information, artists statement, or websites. The piece need not be a functional postcard. Anything goes as long as it is 4” X 6”.
I think it is a brilliant fundraiser!
a 4×6 work of art is not too much to ask of an artist and a 15 dollar purchase supporting good cause seems like a very big win/win situation.
I’m looking forward to attending and am glad I could contribute something!
Love your work. I often like working with cards that are 4 x 6. Today I completed a piece that was 22 x 30. I haven’t painted anything this large for a long time now. I’ve posted it on my blog if you’re interested.
