When I first started making art cards, I thought of them of little pieces of my artwork – little pieces of my heart. “Follow Your Heart” is an art card I made to remind myself that I need to listen to my heart and go in the direction it is pushing me towards. A lot of the time I feel the impulse, but do not act on it. I have been learning to let go, to act. It doesn’t have to be anything earth shattering – it could be as simple as calling a friend I haven’t heard from for awhile, picking up a tab, smiling at a stranger.
It is mixed media: Compass, metal, paper and ink. This is an original, you can see the front, side view and back above. Will be sent in a protective 3″ x 4″ plastic sleeve. Free shipping.
I’ve wanted to do Art Cards, Editions and Originals (ACEO) for years. But for some reason their size was daunting to me. They’re just, so small. The one rules is that they are only 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″. That’s it. At the time, I worked big. Big oil paintings were my thing, not some tiny piece of paper. To learn more about Art Cards, check out my blog post.
