Our Artist Trading Card themes for this month included Palmistry. This was my offering for the exchange; a composition created from a composite of four different vintage illustrations, using Adobe Photoshop.
There are two things in my life that have been constant, no matter what: art and the need for unstructured time to play. I am a compulsive maker-of-things who believes that every day must have some time set aside to feed the creative spirit. This would include making art, looking at art, reading about art, experimenting/playing with materials, learning new skills, and general studio art-play. To support my habit and spread the joy, I was an art educator for 38 years. I'm now retired from public education, but still enjoy teaching occasional workshops locally. I will try to share some of my adventures in both art and play here in this space.
