New Cards

We had a lovely day yesterday-we went over to Hereford to check out some new laptops and then called by on Lin and Dave to pick up the new greetings cards that Lin has done from the photos she took at Onslow Park Steam rally.
Luckily Lin took some pics of as few paintings that sold while we were there-and her photos are a great deal better than mine will ever be, so I have a permanent record of what they really looked like!
Lin was introduced to encaustic art by me at Onslow-and it was clear from the start that she had an eye for it the same way that she has an eye for a good card!
She has used bits of full sized paintings to create a completely different looks to the original. The little single poppy is a good example of that! Its just a tiny bit of a big painting-she has used another part to create the bigger card-very clever.
Some of my photos of the cards leave a lot to be desired-some have reflections in them, but it will give you a good idea as to what they are like.
You can buy them from my website
