I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend. I was busy with a Copic color workshop, and during this time I got an idea for a new series of cards using Pre-Raphaelite art images. I have long been an admirer of Pre-Raphaelite art, and love the intense colors and imagery of Medieval and Renaissance culture. There is also the element of fantasy and nature in Pre-Raphaelite art which makes it so compelling. Looking at a painting is like reading a story, and this was my intention when I set out to make the cards. In fact, after I was finished, they looked like distressed covers of Victorian books.
It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I hope you can look at each card and imagine Once Upon a Time.....and They Lived Happily Ever After.
