My new obsession! Artist Trading Cards (ATC)!

I  remember as a child receiving for school one of those huge boxes with 72 prismacolors pencils.  I was very picky at organizing them in a particular way ... something I still do today.  Never did I realize art, drawing, and painting will be my major outlet as an adult.

Art is such an important form. Not only for the artist but for the expectation as well.

I just started making Art Trade Cards or ATCs as commonly known.  They are quite addictive, and I really enjoy watching the creativity from so many artist around the world.  Can't wait to have a robust collection!

They seem easy,  but the are actually quite hard in my opinion.  Is much harder to work on a small space than on a large one.  Quite hard to apply your values.  But here are my firsts intend at making them.

I have really been busy making ATCs!  And this has become a gallery of sorts.  Here are more cards!

Most of my cards are oils or watercolor.  Sometimes I like to put a diamond glaze on them.
