Postcards from the rain girl

This is created to use as the header of this blog (just scroll up, the header is slightly lighter in color) and I also decided to turn it into a new piece. At the moment, I seem to like using the color mint a lot and so, she's all mint, well, almost. Those colorful shapes are postcards.  The idea here is, she makes rain and turns them into postcards. I'm not quite sure why they form a ball. Maybe she's trying to save the rain, to keep them around longer. This makes so little sense, doesn't it?

This piece is inspired by one of my favorite art: Girl in the wind aka Girl with umbrella by artist   I have this print framed and hanging on my wall at home and it always makes me smile. I hope my piece is a good tribute to Curmi's work.

This is for The Summer of Colors. This week's color is 1 blue + 1 blue + 1 green. For more participants, go here.

  6. Love the colours in my favourite shades of green with hints of blue and aqua! Of course she had to have red hair, no other would have done!

  18. Lovely whimsical image for SOC.

    Art doesn't have to make sense and everyone can make his/her own sense from it ---or not.

    1. I guess you didn't read your comments, I have already seen your piece and commented, I guess it's hard to tell who was visiting unless you really checked.

      anyway, thanks for your visit. have a lovely day.

  44. Gorgeous art! Love the idea of turning rain into postcards :-) You must have a lot of patience painting all those postcards. It looks amazing ....

    1. I do have a lot of patience but not always. but for this piece, it was easier to draw than to color since it took a lot of time coloring every little postcard even though I did do this digitally.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  45. I think it is easily as good and I love it, Lissa. Well, with your love of minty green, I imagine doing AQUA for Ct will be fairly easy for you, right? :)

    You know, that ball makes me think of a clock-- like time is running out so maybe you are being very conscious of your time lately? Anyway, lovely piece...as always. I so love that masthead, as said before. Wonderful. I def think you do that other piece justice.

    BTw, re: nicknames, how about "raindrop girl?"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. actually I did do another aqua/mint piece for CT which you will see on Tuesday.

      the ball of postcards as a clock? makes sense, plus this took a lot of time and patience and it did seem like I didn't have enough time while doing this.

      as for the nickname - raindrop girl sounds good but not as good as mr. toast.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.
