Bang!

Bang! 

The interpretation is up to you.  But I did hear on NPR that the father of the atomic bomb, J. Robert Oppenheimer,  held remorse that the atomic bomb was used on Japan.

Zap!

Zap!

I have quite a collection of antique toy images on Pinterest.  Many of these have been appearing lately in the postcards that I have been doing.  Every once in awhile you will see the red Pegasus horse on display.  It was every where when I was a kid especially at Mobile gas stations.

WOW!

Today is a two-fer.....I missed posting one day last week.  So here is my catching up piece.

WOW!
Sometimes you find a piece of ephemera that you like but just do not know what to do with it.  Or sometimes you use a piece and then have to figure out what will go with it.  That was WOW!  The masked figure provided this dilemma.

Ooops!

Ooops!

Ooop! finished off this postcard which sat around on my desk for many weeks just waiting for that one last something.  Does that ever happen to you when you collage?

Swallow

Swallow

I rather like this postcard quite a bit!  I think color works really well and the layers also work well together.  There are features that one might think are background but are foreground.  I like trying to trick the eye!  This series of postcards all have words that are large which could be considered text effects.

The Camel

The Camel

The Camel is the last of the disparate series.  I enjoyed making this series a lot and plan on using many of the techniques many times in the future.  I love the distressed look that sanding the background gives.

The Ballerina

The Ballerina

I suppose one can draw similarities in dance but it does seem that ballet and Indian dancing are pretty disparate.  I rally like how the bird is semi camouflaged and the ballerina and the background compliment each other.
