Oddity

Curiosity

Women Pirates
I have been working on adding pours to the postcards.  I really like the transparency and color addition that it gives.

Thoughts I have on these postcards.  They were experimental in nature.  I tried so many different things on them.  They are not my favorites but there are parts that I do like.

I would not want to buy insurance or a car from the man in Oddity.  The woman in Curiosity looks like Sally Field.  I particularly like the native.  It is as if he really is curious about these strangers who have invaded his land.  Look what they are wearing compared to his dress.

I guess I never thought about it before but there were women pirates.

The idioms paddle your own canoe and cuckoo in the nest come to mind! Good depth to your designs here.

Of course there were women pirates! Check out Anne Bonney, for one. "Well behaved women really made history. ". ;-)

Love the postcards, personality. There feel free and loose and look like you had a great time making them.
