More postcards

The first one is the painting... it's 10 1/2 x 7 inches.  The second one is the postcard, an image transfer that has been embellished and coated with encaustic finish... resulting in different colors and a different look... it's 6 x 4 inches.  And two more postcards round out this weeks work....  Both of these are transfers from my paintings that have been embellished before adding the encaustic finish. 

The postcards will go to the Muskegon Museum of Art for it's Annual Postcard Salon Fundraiser.  They'll be available for sale there for $30 each.  The painting is available matted with a 3" mat for $95.

Thank you all... the transfer technique is really very easy but it has to be just the right photo paper and I haven't been able to find it lately. I'm down to my last sheet. It's by International Paper Co. JetPrintPhoto, premium, high gloss. If you find it buy it. I'll explain how on my blog this week since space here is short.
