Close-up, Giveaway card #4 (and new art)

Here is a close-up of the fourth cards from the six I am offering to give away. Click image to view larger. Click here to see the art larger (as opposed to the print/card).

I am very disappointed that only John has shown an interest in them. I used to have a fairly good readership before I got too busy to blog daily.

Is it solely the lack of readership?

or, do people not want to give something away?

or, do people not like my art?

or, do they not send letters any more?

:-( I am very sad. Help me out by signing up to win a set of three cards here.

This new piece is a collaboration with my Granddaughter, Rachel Taitt, who chose the colors and applies the first paint. I smeared it with a palette knife and inserted buttons.

It's done on Artrage, on my iPad, digital. I got the buttons online. This is a 5 x 7 print on matte photo paper.

I dedicated it to Kathy E from Novi, because I enjoyed her work--I do not mean to imply that my first attempt holds a candle to hers! Click image to view larger.

Your work and your posts are great. I think there is just a general slowing down of things.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks, John, for your kind words. :-D

I do read your blog & I do love your cards... but I do not want to sign up to win because I do not want the other obligations that come with the cards, if I win. I don't want to commit to hosting a contest on my site, sending out a prize, etc.

But I love your cards & I do write notes the snail mail way :-) I'm sorry you're feeling down about this. Please don't! Your art is wonderful!!!

Thanks, Hennie. I was feeling pretty sad. But I understand about the obligation to give something away, though it doesn't have to be anything big--it does take time--it's been MONTHS since I won my prize before I got around to the paying it forward part. (That may be part of why I feel bad--it took me so long to do it and now I am "failing" at it.

I would love to participate in the weekword, but I don't want to have to host it.

I am seriously considering (yet again) giving up blogging entirely.
