I love your art Onyx. :) I am getting back in touch with my art as well. I was very stressed for many years and it is really relaxing to get back into art. When I figure out how to ad pictures I'll post some of my rock paintings. I have been painting the same image on lots of tiny stones, the moon over a forested lake with a shooting star. I even made the stars and moon glow with luminous paint. I called them wishing stones before I knew wishing stones were a real thing lol.

I look forward to your next art update. :)

Glad to hear you like painting on rocks, I do that too, I use acrylic paint and varnish. Some of my rock paintings have been outside for 10 years and are still okay.
My husband used to work at a business that mined Quartzite slabs of rock. I was allowed to have all the rock I wanted as long as I could lift it. I did end up with a slab that weighed about 50 lbs. I painted a Bison on it. You might have seen the photo. Most of my painting on rock is of Wildlife. A fun and fairy easy subject to paint are prehistoric animals, running horses, Bulls, etc, have a look at pictures of cave paintings in Lascaux France. They will inspire you.

I really like these. The cards pop with the color. :) It makes me want to restart the work I was doing a few years ago on a tarot deck. I was at the time attempting to create a Vampirella themed deck. I designed the backs and frame of the cards and was working on Digitally editing the images from the comics into the different cards. I only have the original drawing I did of the back and borders now though due to a computer dying. :(

If I can find them I'll try to upload a pic. :)

I would love to see what you started if you can find them, I have never worked digitally, it sounds like you had a great idea.

I will look for them when I have a day off from work. I miss my creativity. It felt like it was smothered for a while and is starting to wake back up. :)

I have to think of a new project, I'm just doing little dribbles of art.  I probably should start with an Art Room clean out.  I could find something that would trigger an idea.

The depth of winter is when I am inspired to try new media and techniques.  This year finds me revisiting a hobby from my teens,,,

Dungeons and Dragons fantasy miniatures.  I would paint them and build worlds for them.  Back then they were metal.  Now they are plastic and more affordable.
