Happy Solstice everyone!  The year is just clicking by isn’t it?

A couple of months ago I signed up for a Secret Solstice swap on my one of my mail art trading sites:  IllustratedATCS.com.  It’s like a Secret Santa, only we do it in the spring.  Each participant is assigned a person to make gifts for.  Fortunately each person fills out a profile detailing the sorts of things they’d like to receive.  My gift recipients opened their gifts earlier this month so now I can share the art I made for them.

I agreed to make little gifts for three people.  My gift category was “mini” meaning I would agree to make a smallish art piece (like a 4×4 chunky page or a 5×7 or postcard sized painting) and then some candy or ephemera that they might like.

I was thrilled when I found that I had been assigned to make something for Joy Northrop (she makes fun mixed media collage pieces).  I had just made an ATC trade with her and I knew she loved Boston Terriers so it was fun to make a couple more dog drawings for her.  I liked how they turned out.  I was tempted to keep them.
