Eufaula Postcard Art

.

Having a little Fun with some designs for some new Eufaula postcards.   I didn’t paint this one with a black background, but I used Photoshop Elements to add the black.  If you look at the hi res version, you can see how much it needs to be cleaned up.  So this is not ready to go to the printer at all, but it is a start.  🙂

About Erich Fromm

Erich Fromm, the humanist German psychoanalyst and author, is best known for his book, The Art of Loving, which describes love as care, responsibility, respect, and knowledge. Born in Germany in 1900, he emigrated to the United States in 1934, fleeing Hitler’s regime. He taught at a number of universities in the U.S. and Mexico and wrote eight books delineating his view of human nature. He believed that modern society makes us feel isolated and long to reach out to others. He died in 1980.

Flowerdy Truck Paint Job – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor, Ink & Inktense

I had 45 minutes to paint this morning.  Yesterday, I painted the fenders, tires and interior, so today I did the paint job.  Tomorrow, I do the background.  Backgrounds are usually my least favorite part.  Maybe I can use photoshop to layer it in front of a painting I have already completed.  Hmmmm….. check back tomorrow and see.  😀

5.5″ x 10″ Gouache on Art Spectrum Colourfix

I really love this odd little painting.  It’s another older one.  I was having fun playing with light and shadow, with a limited pallet, letting the colourfix play a big role.  Little did I know back then, that I would be developing this style into a fun way to find my voice.  How fun is that?
