Father's Day Card

Dad and I actually do share interests in many things, not the least of which is photography, and as I've said many times before, his photographs, traipsing along with him on photo-hike escapades, has been critical in training my artist's eye. I wanted to make a card that encompassed his passion for this desert landscape, the colors, the richness & depth of shapes/shadows which can truly be surprising when you get out beyond the inhabited grid. The stamp is a new one to my collection, from Creative Play, called Three Gossips. The pin came from Good Will, a LOOOOONG time ago. Alcohol ink play on the background.

I love your desert scene! This card should be enlarged and hanging on a wall! Do you ever paint big?? The colors and textures are soothing and dreamy. What medium did you use? Have a lovely Sunday! Roxanne
