Postcard Art

Well, just when I think all the great ideas for challenge blogs have been taken, a new one appears today in the form of Postcard Art. Basically a 6x4 canvas using any kind of medium you like.
Their first theme was "summer." I decided to go with a traditional looking postcard of vintage bathing beauties. I can't say I use orange very much in my artwork, but the flower on this patterned paper really drew me in.
Check out this new challenge blog and some great artwork here: Sunday Postcard Art
