Mixed Media Daily Postcards February 1 - 8

 I am working with RED quite a bit this month on my daily postcards,
since Valentine's Day is coming up.
I overpainted a lot of junk mail and old calendars with red and white, too.  
Then, I did some primitive printing and am using markers and colored pencils.
I am finding it good practice to have to try for a good design on each 4 x 6" postcard.
I know I am not succeeding with all of them, but I am working at it and feel good about having the daily practice.  I don't mind that these are only intermittently successful because I have no plan for them other than to grow my own abilities.
It is possible that I might someday mail some of these out to people, 
but that is not in the current plan.

I am making a fabric foundation layer for collage each day for the same reasons. Exploration in volume is really a great way to learn
