Last week I worked on a Postcard Project for Jane Davies to save her little country Post office. Read her post here and feel free to participate. I first collaged and painted a 22 x 30 piece of American Masters printmaking paper (from Utrecht). Then I framed the area that I wanted for this particular postcard, cut it out, added more paint and collage on top, then brushed a tinted glaze over it to bring it all together (a trick I learned from painter Don Tiller). I got 14 postcards out of that piece of paper and will be showing you how they turn out as I finish them.
