                                          "FLORA BY THE STREAM"  by Parker Kaufman, 1999

"FLORA"  (above) was one of my first endeavors in creating Art Cards.  It came about from shopping for a card for a friend and the frustration with the selection of generic, "same-old-same-old" offerings on the market.  I wanted something that spoke my feelings, in volumes, without so much as a single printed word on it's face.  It had to be the product of my heart, mind, and hands.

Each one was roughly 6 x 9 inches in size, made solely of colored cardstock, computer generated images, and embellished with colored pencil and ink.  I continue to make these cards today, adding printed papers, textured cardstock, and layering certain aspects to give a more dimensional quality to them.

More of my art cards and works for framing can be seen on my website
