Be True and More ATC's

Mixed media (collage, ink, acrylics, graphite) on 6 x 8 inch cradled wood panel

This is a big theme in my life right now. Being true to who I am. Searching every little nook and cranny... all of me. Authentic. Transparent. True. Whole.

I have finished up my table full of ATC's from last week (except for the word ones... those are always ongoing). They were really a lot of fun. The girls are collaged with fabric as the first layer, which made them a bit different to paint. Click the image to see better pics on my flickr page.
Today I'm linking up with Paint Party Friday, Artists in Blogland, and Sunday Sketches. Check them out for some other great artists.

More ATCs... in progress

Last week I posted some finished ATC's and it was the first time I had linked up with PPF and Sunday Sketches in a couple of months. I had actually been feeling quite discouraged with my artwork and growth so I backed off from linking up or even posting. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to have the encouragement of other artists last week. Your comments are just so uplifting and greatly appreciated.

I've been on an ATC kick since those first ones I made. I'm having so much fun that I can't stop making them! Here are several in progress. I don't have anything glued down at this point, just trying out my options. I'm linking up to Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches this week. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I've been playing with ATC's (artist trading cards) for a swap over at Artists in Blogland. I have some extras to trade if anyone is interested. The ones above are acrylic, ink and collage and the ones below are water color (learned from Joanne Sharpe). You can see the individual images on my flicker.

I haven't linked up for a while. I've found that I've not liked much of what I've been creating. I've decided to keep moving, but haven't posted as much for a while. I'm feeling a bit better about these ATC's. Maybe the inspiration is returning.
