ATC's From Some Rainy Daze
"Make Happy Happy"
It has a good beat.

I had been saving this snippet of text for something... and then I saw the brushes!
digitally altered Buddha head from one of my Burma pics along with a diagram from an old craft book.
"Tea on the Dock"
"The Awe of it All"

Rainy days sent me up to the studio to play with paper. I cut up old prints and paper from a printmaking class from the 90's that I took. I also messed around with some leftover paint with faux glazing medium from a cupboard painting project.
Then using mostly vintage images and other papers from a swap, I created a few whimsical and decorative ATC's, the meanings of which may be elusive and enigmatic or perhaps up to the viewer to glean.
