Why ATC?

First of all, don't forget about my GIVEAWAY (here is a link)

Why ATC? Just in case, if missed my last post ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. It is a tiny original piece of art created with the intenion of swapping or trading it with another artist, not selling it. The one rule an artist trading card must adhere to is the size. An ATC usually 2.5" x 3.5"
I think I am drawn to ATCs because they are the opposite of everything I've done in the past. I always worked with large sizes

This one inspired by Klimt (my favorite artist) is 36"x48"

This one is 36"x36". I was experimenting with glazes.

This one, in my daughter's bedroom, is 27" by 39"

These two are sitting on top of my pantry cabinet and hard to get to, but they are 18"x27"

These two in my Master Bedroom are the same size 18" x 27"

and these are smallest of anything I've done so far: 5" x 8".

and ATC gives me a chance to explore a new territory. I am learning more about ATCs and looking forward to this challenge!

Wish me luck.



  1. You are a very talented artist. I love Gustav Klimt! Your flower reminds me of Georgia O'Keefe. Very pretty work. Good luck with the ATCs.
