Translation of Poppy-Feeling and Award

Experimenting again with my cropped-up painting (Soulbrush and Lynn , can't unfortunately trade the cards as I still need them...)

I made a square "cache", in order to change perspectives, and then painted the new image on 25 x 25 paper with oil-pastels. Proceeded the same way with two other images and would like to continue like this, in order to create a new body of work for an exhibition. I feel that this is a kind of visual translation of what I feel when I look at poppies....

Andrea, this work is truly beautiful. You are gaining a lot from this experience and it seems as though this 'process' is working incredibly well for you. These pieces are amazing! I just love how you have taken the poppies and completely abstracted them in a way which is exceptionally appealing!

Congratulations on the Award! You are very deserving to be sure!

Keep going with this lovely body of work!

Hi, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
Essex
SS0 9XD
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

I'm not so very much interested in painting Frankenstein's Monster, LOL, but perhaps my blogfriends are, you never know:)
love
Andrea
