Kings and Kindred Spirits

This week's letter is K.

I thought I would share two of the artist trading cards I made several years ago that featured the letter k.

King of the World was inspired by a Leonardo DiCaprio's scene in Titanic.  Of course, the king in my work was a dachshund!  Dogs are a favorite theme of mine when making paper and collage art.



And the second, was inspired by a favorite expression used by Anne Shirley in the Anne of Avonlea book series.  Kindred spirits.  The very idea of kindred spirits has always fascinated me.  Do you have a kindred spirit?  Once or twice I thought I  did, but, alas, the spirit was willing, but the kindred was not able.  Having said that much, I can say my ATC card was inspired by the fact that if a dog loves you, he or she loves you unconditionally and always.  I have had the privilege of having some great dogs in my life.  My gorgeous Maggie Poodle, is a delight to me.  I find her to be the most wonderful dog.    So, when I made a kindred spirit card I featured a big standard white poodle.
