Medicine Cards

I can't believe a year has passed since my last post.  So much has happened.  For now, just a quick announcement about my newest project.  I have made my series of Affirmation images into a deck of cards.  I am so excited about these, as they capture the essence of what these images really have meant to me, perhaps more than the plaques because they come as a series, with a full narrative.  And the little bag and feel of the cards is so nice in the hand. I have decided it is finally time for me to "do the intellectual part of my work" as one painting teacher used to say of artist's statements and such.  So I shall start to tell the story of how these cards came to be, a journey that began over 20 years ago.  For now though, just some photos of the little gems.  The printer has done a fabulous job, and it all came together even better than I had envisioned.  Available at the shop via the link.
