"Days of Pen and Ink" Acrylic/Mixed Media

"Days of Pen and Ink"
Acrylic with applied papers and ink.
I found this neat printed paper with old postcards and handwritten notes and I thought about with all of today's technology, how the art of sitting down and handwriting a note or letter is being lost. I've noticed how over the years, my handwriting has lost it's original flare.
Use it or lose it, so they say.
This was a fun piece to do. I applied the "note'' section and black fibrous paper with medium, antiqued it and did a little stylized scribble. I could have done more to this piece, but decided the focal point was telling the story well enough. Warm tones help with the feeling.
