Cris's Wonderful Art; My New Stamping and Resulting ATCs and HAW!
Monday's snail mail brought me ATCs from Cris, Artist in Oregon. See her art at: http://crisinor.blogspot.com...check out her slide show of her paintings! I LOVE this photo card she sent with them. The painting on the card is by Cris. I had the priviledge to see it in person when I visited her home last summer. I thought it was a photograph when I saw it hanging on her wall. It is so realistic! But it's not, it is an extrodinary oil painting by Cris. Thank you Cris for sending me a copy of your wonderful painting. No one will be much surprised that I chose this jar of buttons ATC by Cris! It reminded me of a tin of buttons she gave me at that same visit, and which I used on a quilt I have yet to show here (but will near the end of June). And this Pink Coneflower grabbed my heart as well. Isn't all her art just terrific? Thanks again Cris for your generous trades and shares. I'll add this ATC to my trading slide (under my banner)... I made it using the stamp I carved out of a piece of styrofoam the other day. Same stamped ATC but this time with watercolors added. And finally you can see the stamp itself, the stamp pads (ColorBox Acid Free Ink) and the finished ATC. Lest I not forget it is Animal Wednesday...we saw these critters on our weekend jaunt along the Delta... Happy animal Wednesday
