If you stop making art, the terrorists win

During the past two months, I've been dealing with things that terrify me: conflict and money. Life is reminding me I have limited control over how fast I can get this thing done. And the Thing can't be done without a certain person who disappears from view unless his priorities happen to coincide with mine.

Have also noticed it seems I make more art when I'm stressed out. I now understand Twyla Tharp a lot better: "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."

So I tried to divert some of my energy away from worrying and toward altering more postcards. Which is what I meant to be doing anyhow.

Here are a few peeks (not "peaks" or "piques") of the finished card. If I could make another card every time I felt this stressed out, I'd have enough to wallpaper the Great Wall of China.
