I am starting a new tradition.  I want to motivate myself by sending a hand-painted card on this site the first of every week.
I was inspired to do some primary colors abstracts. Since I hate to waste leftover paint, I made this little one to use as a greeting card. Used Liquitex acrylic gouache. Paper was 160lb. drawing paper by Bee.

Happy New Week

Good idea Mea! Looks good!
Like I had mentioned before sending personal self made cards seems to be something special for
people receiving them. Eventhough I should mention that its sad that such cards which have taken quite some time to create them ultimately are stored in drawers, whereas paintings are hung on the wall. I feel that paintings are more cherished.
I sent about 15 similar cards as Easter greetings yesterday (with my newly acquired knowledge of die cutting, embossing etc).
Now I shall slowly switch my time to painting instead. Lots of things pending.

Gita,

I bet some of those cards end up being framed as I have seen many of my friends do.

You work is to be treasured.

Creativity at its best!   I love how you constantly find new avenues to create and have no fears of outcomes.  My daughter pours left over acrylic paints on non-porous surface to make 'skins'.  Then cuts pieces and glues them to make abstract cards, results varies.
Cheers!

Thanks so much, Annie.

If I had to depend on my art for a living, I don't think I would be so daring.

I just ordered hair chalk - looking forward to seeing what I can do with that.

Good to see you again.

Thank you for the compliment regarding my expression, Nolan! Neon pink is a colour which I use when the sun is shining and the moods are high!
Annie, that is a good idea! I could use acrylic skins to die cut them!
I agree Mea, creativity is more at ease if there is no financial pressure to be successful.
