Cards for KIVA

vandvcloudscardfinal

Just a fews days left to purchase this season’s cards to benefit KIVA.

While I do not enjoy selling anything, I would like you all to know that a very small purchase of even five dollars will allow you to to contribute to this fine organization.                                  KIVA supports individuals desperately trying to support their families by administering small business loans with your purchase dollars.

I’ve contributed these three images to the mix, but the collection is varied and beautiful.  I usually purchase and then gift the cards at Holiday time.

Thanks for your consideration.

For those who are interested, the cards are donated by women from all over the globe who contribute to Vision and Verb.  V&V compiles each purchase to reach twenty-five dollars, then sends the full amount to KIVA.     Enjoy the V&V posts.  The are always a great read.

As promised earlier in the month, here is Samantha’s completed acrylic painting.  Clearly, Samantha is not afraid of rendering her darks and lights.  She’s a natural with values. However, translating black and white into color is a little tricky.  This is not a problem for Samantha. She dove right in with complementary colors.  They pop with energy when placed together, as you can see in this piece.  Sam didn’t stop there, she added drama with her stylized interpretation of the scene.  The design work in her  composition pulls each element together beautifully.  Samantha’s painting welcomes the viewer to step right in, pick some apples and enjoy the warmth of the scene. Very nice work.
