ART, NAPOLEAN DYNOMITE, PURSES

These are some quick little sketches I did yesterday, and a sheep postcard for a sheep mail call from someone in France. AND that ATC on the left is one my friend, Sanna, made for me. It's a Zetti-like rendition of my oldest granddaughter. She does beautiful work, but one particular thing I really admire about her skill is the way she does skin tones. If you could see this little ATC in real life, you would see a gorgeous blend of colors - brown, yellow, green, red - that make up the face. It is just amazing. When I try to do that, it turns out either splotchy or muddy. But, I'll keep trying...
Chuck got home this afternoon. And Zachary is spending the night. I bought a DVD of Napolean Dynomite earlier today. I really like it - hilarious!
There was a discussion today about purses and what we keep in them. I thought about 'unpacking' mine and uploading a photo of the contents...but it seemed like too much work. Maybe in a day or two. Hey, pequeno tigre! Are you reading this? There's a still life idea for you. ;) Not very aesthetically appealing though...

Wanda, that is a great idea you have of taking a pic of the contents of our purses! Would you mind sharing that with the group? I think it would be fun!...carrie

that would be a smashing idea... for maybe one of our future assignements. i'm not sure i could pull off decent still life out of my purse though.
i did just put together a 'cezanne inspired' one finally and i think i've got it!
hey... do you exchange mail art cards? i'm guessing that's what the ATC exchange is about, right? e-mail me at stephanie@stephaniecurry.com if you want to exchange mail art sometime.
