Painting Day!

I’m loving today.  Today I’m painting mini abstract landscapes for an ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap event.

I’m a member of a Facebook Group called Artist Trading Card Addicts and several of us are creating our version of an abstract landscape.  I’m using my acrylics to create mine.  Painting a Landscape this small (2.5×3.5 inches) is quite a challenge and its a good thing its abstract, as fine details are very hard at this size.  Also my OTT lamp is stored in the basement right now and I can’t get it out until tomorrow when my dh can do it.  Being in this wheelchair is definitely a hassle sometimes.

I’m creating 9 cards to swap with a lady who lives in Athins, Greece.  Each of these cards must have a holiday theme and be a standard sized ATC. Continue reading
