What sunshine is to Flowers, smiles are to Humanity

This week's Sunday Postcard Art is THE SUN ... it's been chosen by Anne

I've seen glimpses of sunshine through the window but generally the weather in England has been horrible, rain and wind... but it IS Winter so how can one complain? Soon we will be complaining it's too hot! ahhh the English way of complaining

here is my postcard before I added any paint to it... there's something lacking (besides colour) I think it's the absence of texture paste. Sometimes I get carried away collaging and forget to add texture beforehand and then there is little space to add texture afterwards.

and here is the postcard once the painting has finished ;-)

one of my favourite things to do is to discover new quotes
and this time it was no different.

This is beautiful Mandy, and I like how you showed the before and after coloring. That is a great quote that you found. Thank you for letting me host this week: it is always an honor. Great artwork.

Since I do mostly digital art, I always look forward to your wonderful mixed media pieces, Mandy. This one is a delight.
