I decided to double up and make some postcards that would fit in with the colors of the day.
Of course now that I am ready to mail them off I regret not making larger pieces to keep with my other colors. Rather than having an incomplete rainbow I will probably end up making MORE blue and purple art to keep.
For now, here are my postcards.
I started the blue ones with various security envelopes... which makes me think of money...which led me to this old book of mathematical tables I found at the thrift store, and I found and ripped some pages about calculating compound interest.... which made me think of a terrific (if a bit dark and depressing) song by the National, Bloodbuzz Ohio, and it's repeating chorus of "I still owe money, to the money, to money I owe".... which just seems to sum up the sad state of so many Americans in this economy.
So after getting all dark and heavy on myself, I switched to another in my series of purple flower postcards. I had a hot mess of a painting a few months back that got cut into postcards. Bit by bit, I've been doctoring them and sending them out. I cut the flower petals out of painted book pages
