Two new greeting cards

The greeting card above is based on my hand painted found-wood figure, which was shown on my blog here. (The original is now in the The Tarrawarra Museum of Art shop.) When I decided that it might make a good card, I removed the 'woody' background from my scan in Photoshop, as it was too uneven. It took a couple of hours -- look at all those ladder rungs that had to be cut around! But I didn't think it was worth repainting -- sometimes when I paint something the second time around it loses its liveliness.
A greeting card of the tartan hunter is now in the shop too. This one had a much nicer woodgrain, so I left it as it was.

The original artwork, also a hand painted standing plywood figure, is at Hut 13 in Armadale, Melbourne. You can see him here as well.
