More Artist Trading Cards - ATC

 This was done for a Georgia O'Keefe swap on Swap-bot.  Atlanta businesses plant thousand upon thousands of these in thier office parks this time of year.  Wish I had time to put a few in my little garden!
The one to the right was a still life painted also for a Swap-Bot swap. I really like to paint flowers :-)

Artist Trading Cards !

Been awhile since I posted.  Last May my husband was diagnosed with MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) and it's been a super busy time with taking care of his special needs and continuing to work full time.  MDS is a cancer of the bone marrow and short of a transplant, there is no cure.  Chemo, blood transfustion due to red blood cell depletion and a constant critically low white blood cell count requiring lots and lots of cleaning/disinfecting house time.

Anyway, due to this issue, my "me" time is almost non existant!  I've gotten back in to doing the ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) because they are small, portable projects.  I can work on them at breaks at work, without it drawing much attention, on the kitchen counter while cooking meals, sitting in doctor's office and the infusion center, hospital rooms...Welll you get the idea! 

This is one I did for a "Trees" ATC swap on Swap-Bot.  It is watercolor and completely from imagination.

I've joined several more swaps on Swap-Bot and a larger project on Wet Canvas, so I've got 'em lined up to do for my "diversion".  I have several more ready to go just waiting on partners to be assigned, so I hope to get them here on my blog as well.
