I love all the items posted here. Great jobs.
Myself have been rather busy with commissions. Still for a children’s book busy with illustration number 59. I think the author would like some more before this one is done. Also started painting for playing cards pictures; king, queen, jack and aces. Cute designs of chickens this time. Not ok to show the whole finished paintings through. Just a sneaky preview of one I am busy with. More to show later when they are published.

great work everyone…You are so clever Tina @DaisyWings, I wouldn’t have a clue how to print things and would probably be paranoid about putting any card into my printer…too technical for me…so all of my cards have to be originals…sigh…
I have just finished this canvas board painting but it isn;t listed yet

Thanks Brenda, printing can be tricky though, things don’t always print quite the way you want them too.
I’m sure that people would love to receive a lovely handpainted card, that’s so special. :slight_smile:

@teabreaks You’re saving yourself a nightmare not printing on card! It will depend on your printer because they all accept different weights of paper/card, but finding one that prints on thick card doesn’t seem very common, and when you’re just at the edge of the weight your printer will accept (which I seem to be a lot), you spend a lot of time trying to gently persuade your printer to take the card… :sweat_smile:

Please printer? You took the last sheet fine… this one is just the same… maybe if I just wiggle it a bit… please… TAKE IT… swear words
