…is Loop de Loop! Or at least until March 22nd when this month’s contest ends. Here’s the link to my entry: http://www.loopdeloop.org/2015/02/mari-jaye-blanchard-gravity/
“Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

I am posting the original version of this year’s holiday card I just made for New York Foundation for the Arts before I had to change the “Let It Snow” to “Season’s Greetings” to accommodate those who do not experience snow this time of year…which apparently no longer includes Hawaii.
Music is by the lovely Mandy Heck.

For over a decade, my day job was painting murals for Trader Joe’s. I recently gave up this position, but I figured I’d post some of the oldies but goodies…and by goodies I mean candy or cake! :)
I made hundreds of these painted cut-outs over the years, if I find another chunk of them I’ll post them as well.
Most hand-lettering in these images was done by the wonderful Jason A. Hernandez.
