Illustration Friday - Ripple

'Ripple- Hermit Crab 1' - mixed media 3.5 x 2.5 inches - © Caroline Soer
SOLD

Ripple is the word for Illustration Friday this week. IF has teamed up with Kelly Light who started Ripple Blog to raise money to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. Now artists from all over the world are contributing illustrations for the cause. A card costs just $10 and every penny is donated. The two Non-profit organisations that are benefitting are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. Please visit Ripple Sketches to see some wonderful art and have the opportunity to purchase a card by donating directly to one of the non-profits. You then just need to email the confirmation and your address to ripplesketches@verizon.net. The artist will then mail you the signed card.

Below are two more cards I have made to donate to the cause. The set has been created with watercolours and ink, with some collage, on gessoed mountboard.

  7. Caroline! Helllooooooo!

    Caroline, I want the bottom card and I will make a donation for it but I have no access to a pc where I can go 'shopping". I don't know if it will still be available this evening, but I want it. If not, can you make an extra one for me and I will directly donate and show you my invoice. Kelly was already having a hard time with private arrangements. HAHAHA!

  21. Absolutely sublime..oh how I wish I'd been in time to buy those! Will you be doing more, Caroline, and if so, please may I buy a set? (Signed prints would be fine, if you don't do any more originals on this theme) Your work is simply exquisite in every possible way. I've tip-toed in often just to sit and stare in wonder at the work you do...yours is definitely one of the most beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring blogs ever. The sheer aesthetic appeal is so utterly compelling. xx

  25. These are gorgeous Caroline. Wonderful colours and designs.

    I held my breath until I reached the bottom of the Tia post to make sure that she returned home safely. We too have had cats disappear for days on end and then turn up as if nothing had happened. Where do they go to and why?
