Person carrying a photo…

Another postcard. This person, cut from a grocery bag, is carrying an upside-down print of a photo I took of a plant set on a table in my studio, some time back (I know this because the walls in this room are now green, not yellow!).

Mixed media on cereal-box cardboard, 6″ x 4.25″.

    Yes, when I saw the card and looked through my papers, I knew I wanted the figure to be holding something, and when I saw this photo – perfect, as if I had made them for each other!

    Thank you! These little cards keep me from over doing it and they pare down my images to essentials, due to lack of room to ornament too much. And I always like the idea of worlds within worlds!

    I know, I didn’t mean for this one to have the look it did, I mean, I did not anticipate it, it just happened, but I think it’s the combination of the colors with the hard edges of the person and the photo – the contrast somehow makes it work out. I love these serendipitous moments! Thank you.
