An outdated book.
I've had this book for years.
This book was outdated from a library years ago. I was the lucky buyer and have thought of painting the mushrooms ever since.
Every image in the book is handpainted and then photographed. It's a great inspiration. The book itself was ment for mushroom pickers, but new knowledge made it nessesary to make a new edition.
Yesterday I saw Geninne in Geninne's Art had painted a mushroom together with her lovely birds and that got me to remember my book. Have a look at the images, they're so beautiful.
In my studio today.
In my studio today I wanted to paint some of the images. I've been painting with my watercolours lately and I like them alot.
I came up with two images and painted them. But, something was itching my mind.
My paintings are sized like postcards and I have decide to try painting these as postcards. Do you think they can be used for that purpose?
I do send quite a few postcards during a year, and some of the recipients do want handmade cards. The only thing I need to figure out is how to make a nice reverse. It's not a problem but I want something special.
I have a friend with good connection to get stuff printed so perhaps I should get them printed. Well, let me paint them first. :-)
I'm so happy today because the sun is shining. Everything seem easier then.
Have a nice day and take care!
