Here's a second art prompt for the week (to make up for last week). Visit your library and find some old books. I'm lucky enough to own 7 bookshelves full of favorite old books, so I didn't need to go far.
I still read "Frog and Toad"!
Grab a sketchbook and start drawing bits and pieces of interesting parts. I created my postcard on top of a photocopy of a page of text. The tree comes from a sketch I did from a favorite Steinbeck novel I just finished reading. I also added bits of string and acrylic skins my mom removed from an old plaster painting of hers.
cast-off acrylic skins from my mom, Bonnie Coulter.
The finished product is a whimsical multi medium art piece that can get dropped in the mail and sent along. And maybe when the friend on the other end receives it, they will make a pot of tea, slow down and enjoy some quiet time too.
