At the Illustrated Artist Trading Card site I took the challenge to paint a complete deck of cards. This project is unusual in the trading site because the cards are to be kept and not traded with the other painters, therefore, I am at liberty to do something that might not appeal to someone else - like portraits of people who are significant to me. So I chose to do oil portraits of family, friends, and others who have had an impact on my life and surround them with a border of Haiku (5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables). I had the subject draw a card (poker size) from the deck and that's the card I chose to paint them on. If they were unavailable I drew for them. Will be posting them as I am able.
