"Me" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “Me.” I'm a private person, so I almost wasn't going to do this challenge. But then I decided to make a mix of themes that I like, to show me. This postcard has a blend of celestial, astronomical charts, medieval, illuminated manuscript writing, and rhinoceros. Other themes that I like are art deco, art nouveau, vintage, stained glass, the ocean/water, futuristic (science fiction slant), Old World Maps, monsters (sea monsters, dragons), Celtic, Moroccan, Oriental, magical/enchanted, mythology, dark (skeletons, witches, devils, wizards, druids, occult, tarot). I've probably left out some too.

I've been working a lot lately, which has hampered my creative side from coming up with good ideas for challenges. But I'm grateful that I have a job, because I know people who are underemployed and unemployed.

Most of these images are from the New York Public Library and the Library of Congress. Links for those sites and other resources are on the right hand side of my blog.
