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.

  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.
