ATC Cards

We were doing ATC cards in collage class to exchange so I had to come up with a background to use.
I cut up a demo sheet that I had done using folded pen and coke pen with sumi ink and walnut ink. Then used a rust brush marker for a little more color. And the embossed letters add one more element.

Collage with Michigan photos

This has photos that my Dad took when he and friends biked around Lake Michigan as I understand. Some photos say Mackanac Island and have a couple of towns written on the back. I'm not sure what town this is on the left.
Then to finish it off, I transfered a photo of him with his bike over the old script.

Newest Painting

I wasnt' sure which photo was going to show the best color, but it seems like maybe inbetween. Anyway, I tried using bolder colors and especially, tried some dif. techniques like allowing some crawl backs in the paint for texture. I think the tulips got smaller and smaller but still will finish this.

On the left will be a silver syrup pitcher my Mom had when growing up! It's unfortunately melted on the bottom from being put on the stove she says, but has the M monogram on the front.
