Art Postcards

Hola, art postcard

This past week I worked on some new art postcards. For Hola, I drew the portrait with micron pen and added irredescent watercolors. I painted the background with red acrylic and glued circles of accounting paper with my hand written letters.

I am addicted to perusing the second hand store in town. I love looking at the vintage items and finding odds and ends that I need. Last month I found a stash of stickers and rub-ons. For Hello, I used stick on letters and a rub on ribbon. I drew the portrait with black and sepia micron pens.

I plan to do more art postcards along the theme of saying hello. Next one will be with a greeting in Japanese, konnichiwa.

Do you know greetings in other languages? Let me know in your comments.


  1. I love these...very creative! Sadly, I only know a few words in a couple different languages. Wish I knew more : )

  2. This is great! I love second hand stores, myself.
    Aloha-- Hawaiian
    Guten tag-- German

  3. These are wonderful! Ciao is an Italian hello.

  4. I just know English, and a spattering of Spanish. And in Hebrew hello/goodbye/peace is shalom.
    Your portraits are lovely. {:-Deb

  5. I like these, Juana, especially the "portrait" at the top--the colors are great!

    Good Day in Norwegian is "God Dag" and Hello is "Hallo" :o)

    Happy Day ((HUGS))

  6. Bonjour! (French) Love your cards with simple text and portraits!

  7. Your art is very interesting. Classic is the word I would use to describe it.

    Side note: I too love the occasional turn around the thrift stores in my town. You never know what you're going to find.

  8. a wonderful theme to art around-nice works!!

  9. Thanks for all the suggestions on saying Hello in different languages.
