It is hard to believe there are only five days left in the Challenge. For the most part I have stayed true to my plan to work on pen & ink pieces for the whole month.
Today's drawing/painting combines a free style flower drawing and a precise rendition of a wall and window - the contrasts were fun!
The other day a friend mentioned that she was surprised that none of my pen & ink cards sold at the recent Art Club Fall Show. I have found over the years that most people seem to prefer color in the art they buy, which is one of the reasons I don't do black & white often. However, my friend's comment got me to thinking. These original pieces are are not just cards! They can easily be turned into wall art just by adding a mat and a frame.
This is today's piece in an 8 x 10 mat: a group of these cards would make a wonderful and inexpensive display. I guess I have to make a sign stating "Frame-able Cards" to help people see beyond the obvious.
