It is hot here. The sun is beating down in pain at the weathered old bricks and the withered old planks and back-bent people. I sigh. Well after sunset the bricks still tell stories, radiating wild hyperbole to any who shied away indoors, hiding from the heat: “Hoo, kid. You missed out; it was upwards of a trillion today!” And there are no summer nights, just drawn out days gone bruised and humid. I need some relief.
And now, what you came for…It’s giveaway time! I’d hoped to post this earlier, but temperamental technological and personal issues kept me away. Below are the three small art cards I am offering; my gift of three. I’m also putting together a small packet of vintage paper ephemera and scrap papers to be included.
They measure 2-1/2″x3-1/2″ each. As individuals pieces:
The last one I’m particularly happy with. “The Red Rag” started out as a landscape, a very bad landscape, so I turned it sideways and went from there. Sometimes a different perspective is all that’s needed.
To enter my gift of three giveaway, simply do the following:
Comment on this post and describe any methods or techniques you have for continuing to remain creative when you are exhausted, worn out, ill, depressed, busy with too many work projects, [insert your situation here…], etc. Do you still make art (or work on that novel, or compose a few lines of music)?
You’ll get a double-entry if you tweet about the giveaway or mention it on your blog – be sure to link me to it. (There will be more giveaways in the future, fingers crossed, so consider following my blog as well). Enter by midnight central time, United States (UTC−05). I’ll use a randomizer to pick the winner the following day.
Hope everyone has good and safe holidays this week wherever you are!
