Itty bitty little screens

December 16, 2013
Even a tiny little ATC (Artist’s Trading Card) needs a focal point, somewhere to rest the eye. These cards-in-progress are a mere 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ – sweet to hold art in the palm of your hand eh?

Sometimes it is a blast working in this VERY small format. So small that it doesn’t matter if you mess up.
These thermofax screens are so small that they don’t need a frame at all. Just use duct tape to “bind” the edges and it will hold it stiff enough to get a clean print. If you are interested in making screens this small you can arrange a number of images on one page and order one full sized imaged screen. Just make sure to give it enough space around each image to cut it into it’s own little rectangular screen.
Today’s giveaway is another set of little bitty thermofax screens. These two are DaVinci sketches, perfectly sized for Artist Trading Cards.

    Ansel Adams for his amazing photography. Georgia O’Keefe for her macro art–turns out that is how I sketch. The impressionists for the imprecision that is so wonderful. Surat for pointillism–color theory at its finest. The unnamed artist who designed the stained glass at Sainte Chappelle in Paris–so many images, such soaring majesty! And you Lyric for reminding me that not everything has to be a masterpiece but art is important so I should do art often.

    When I lived in France, I gained an appreciation for many of the French artists–Matisse is a favorite.

    My favorite master artist is August Macke from the “Blauer Reiter” artist group in the time before World War I. They started the cubism in art. I specially love his water colour paintings from Tunisia.

    I love Jackson Pollack. I love the manic look, that is something I can do and it so freeing to just fling paint and make a statement of my own.

    Gosh, I’m going to aound like I live in a cave but I do not know any master artists. I have not studied art, drawing or painting. I happened onto your blog and love what I see and learn here.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

    I love Georgia O’Keefe’s work, especially her macro images of flowers. To see so clearly the beauty in minutiae is wonderful.

    She may not be an official ‘master artist’ but I love the work of Ineke Berlyn – I’ve taken a couple of workshops from Ineke, she’s so generous with her expertise!
