by Bo Beskow, a Swedish artist and author who died on April 1 in 1989. I'm sharing this painting and its table full of drinks for the weekly T Stands for Tuesday blogger gathering, where any post that includes a drink of some kind is your "in" to delightful company.
There've been several questions about how I find the time to do so many of these. I confess that one of the reasons I love ATCs so much is that when I was introduced to them part of the explanation was that you shouldn't spend a lot of time on each one, that they are a more casual type of art not intended to be struggled with or lingered over. What I do doesn't take hardly any time at all. They are tiny, after all, and I use a lot of prompts I see online so the idea is already there for most of them. The most time-consuming part has been finding some piece I knew I had but couldn't locate in my stash or experimenting with an unusual shape. These are speedy little bits of quickness. I imagine if I stick with this and learn more about it I will begin to spend more time on each one.
