The ATC journey continues. I have two granddaughters that are in their mid-20’s and they are very different people. One tall, like an Amazon, one smaller and delicate. Both brave and independent. My oldest granddaughter loves monkeys so I had to include a monkey in her ATC.

Does the background look familiar? It is the kaleidoscopic background painted by Paul Signac when doing his portrait of Felix Fenellon. This painting was in a special exhibition at The Indianapolis Museum Art recently. It is amazing to see this painting in person. It shimmers!

My younger granddaughter is a free-spirit that has little fear and a big, bold, social personality. For her, I focused on travel, adventure and dance.

Ho! Ho! Ho! The Christmas ATC elf continues to play. These two interesting little ATC’s are for my two oldest grandsons. They are as different as their ATC’s. My oldest grandson is a farmer, has a lovely wife and three little daughters (his little spark plugs). His wife is very good at crafts and cooking and making a great home. Their ATC was inspired by the Raggedy Ann doll and was brought to completion when I found the faded flag. The two together give me a strong feeling of nostalgia and Americana. I loved this one.

My younger grandson is in the Army, has been stationed in Germany and Afghanistan and is now living in Louisiana. He and his very patient wife, who has become a master at packing, finding new friends and being the master of flexibility, have one lovely little daughter who loves to be naked and a son due in a couple of weeks. Their ATC shows a lion – strong and proud. I wanted to create a feeling of courage and adventure.

I continue to create my Artist Trading Card collages for my family. I put them in their Christmas cards so they can collect original art. These are for my two nephews. One nephew is in the Army and is based near Washington, DC. The other is working in farming near my home. The source material is my usual – travel brochures, advertising flyers, magazines and catalogs. I’m learning to do a lot with “a little”. Can you guess who is pondering changes right now?
