Wow That's Bright!

K, I really thought I was going to stop posting cards I wasn't 100% positively crazy about. But then Krista (!) walked in and looked at this card and said, "oooh, i really like that one, mom." K, you have to understand, Krista doesn't 'really like' anything. Everything is 'eh' or 'okay. whatever'. And it's not just cuz she's 11. That's just Krista. I looked at her in shock and said, "really? cuz i think that blue is a little...much." And she said, "the blue is what makes it." Ok, I'm not sure where this child came from or when she decided that colors other than green, black or brown were ok, OR that anything 'makes it'. But at heart, she IS an artist and I guess when she sees something that speaks to her, she's gonna let you know. I, however, wasn't crazy about this card and tried to do it over in pink, and that was even less successful than this version. This card has had a reverse effect on me, tho. Usually I'm not as in love with a card after looking at it for a few days. With this one, it's growing on me. Go figure.

You go, Krista. I love it, too. The color is fab and the little penguin is too cute. Not too bright for Grandma Dee! Gee, now there's a surprise. Plus, I did five (!) horse paintings using that color as a solid background, and they were chosen to hang in the studio for a whole month.
