Today is a pretty good day.   Swingin' On a Star _revamp_ 

First, I got a DD for  Rickety Universe by nihilistic-hun.   And this is very exciting.  Thanks to jenthestrawberry for the nomination. 

Then,  I got a really nice surprise in my personal life.  (which I won't bore you with the details) 

So I feel that Christmas is coming early this year.

I'm feeling better now.  My cards are done and in the mail.  Although, this is cutting it short.  I am not sure if the postal service can deliver from Canada to the US in a week.   :panic: We'll see.  

After my annoyance and inability to handle glue and trying to glue papers of different weights together, I ended up just folding hot press watercolor paper into a card and paint directly on top.  That worked but it is not as pretty as it would be if I had been able to include some japanese papers as I intended. 

So for next year, I will have to start early instead of waiting till the last minute and I can do some testing with the great solutions that I received on my last journal. 

Here are my cards:

I must admit that I have a very short attention span. But that's not the only reason why my work looks so scattered and unfocused. The truth is I really like to play and experiment with different media, different tools and even different styles and subject matters.
Even though it is hard to see, there is a common thread through all my art. I love to abstract and stylize, I prefer texture and grittiness. I like bold simple shapes, few details, dramatic colors and contrast. I am fascinated by myth, dreams and psychology so my works are often reflective or spiritual.

Scattered and unfocussed is OK. I think it is all to easy to get stuck in a rut and by switching about and trying new things it allows you to keep interested and also to grow. When I started in DA I tended to paint in a particular way, but I have gradually moved to other media and styles because other artists have shown me what is possible.
