The Emerald Casket


Before I say goodbye to the #ICAD2020 challenge, here’s what I created over those 61 days. I’ll admit, the format annoyed me. I didn’t like the texture of the index cards, and no amount of texturizing ground or gesso would solve the problem, so sometimes, I cut up art paper to the proper size to do my art. Also, the size annoyed me. The same size every day. However, the challenge taught me I can struggle through annoyance and do what I have to do. I discovered themes I love and want to expand on now that I’m finished.

And I’m not quite done with this challenge. I’ve seen some cute accordion “booklets” of cards taped end-to-end, so when I have a spare moment, I’m going to assemble one! I’m learning all the time, and this challenge was well worth the effort and aggravation. 🙂

Here are two pictures of all the art I created during the challenge…

    What a great accomplishment! I think an accordion “booklet” would be a perfect way to keep and showcase these.
