Doors


Now that the family's away, I'm able to start catching up on some of my art trading commitments + work on new canvases (yahoo!) + spring clean (but we don't need to talk about that!)

Here's a postcard I made for a door themed trade. I took the text from random bits of a poem by Maya Angelou called California Prodigal. The parts I used:

Star Jasmine and old vines
Lay claim
Flush on inner cottage walls
Antiquitous faces
glare

I thought it fit the card well. Funny, I was just going through my box of text simply looking for the word "open." I think Maya's words are much better!

I love doors. I always want to know what's behind them. I'm snoopy. This is so lovely and I took a quick peek below and, as always, everything is as lovely as can be!

I'm here in Missouri just fine. I just wanted to drop and say Hi and thank you for your good wishes and to tell you to enjoy your exciting next few weeks!
