Jane Davies is a popular teacher and I can see why.
I finally met her last week, at Art & Soul in Kansas City, where I taught and she did too. She offered a free postcard class one evening, and I went.
She told us to make four very distinct designs on one piece of paper. All I had to work with was some pens and a bit of paint, not the roller carts of paper and collage materials most of the others had, so I set about drawing.
The third one turned into a map. Somehow that seems to happen. I am always trying to find myself on a map. This one is painted with acrylic, then scraped with a credit card. The pens I used on the other sections where the same ones I used here.
The fourth section needed to be simple, to contrast with its busy neighbors. I love how the little sliver of map shows up.
So I am making postcards, lots of them, to send out as thank yous. Ahh, mail art.
You can send one to Jane if you like, to help save her post office. Check that out.
