196 Cards from A Postcard from my walk - a tribute to Earth Day


Our project has come to an end. With many stories to tell about lost cards and some destroyed by rain and some never received and some resent...it was exciting, kept us on our toes and we were constantly challenged to come up with interesting and original subjects. But here we are...a little over a year later and very appropriate for earth day 2012, we look back on our cards and a great satisfaction and contentment bring a smile to our faces. It was a year well spent around the pencil and brush.

Thank you to all my fellow participants for making this an absorbing - and informative - project about the places where we live and the things we see.

Thank you all
I've greatly enjoyed reading this blog, and seeing all your artwork.

I hope you create posters of all the postcards together like they are above.

Brilliant Ronelle! The montages you created for each individual look wonderful!

May I echo Katherine and thank you for all your organisation. It was such a good project to be involved in.

I like that the poster look makes it all come together and ends our adventure. Thank you to all.

Thank you everyone for your gifts of original art. I treasure all the postcards I received and very much miss the anticipation of what the postman will bring each month.
