I started doing LTCs & Artist Trading Cards in August of 2008.

I hand carve rubber stamps and some of my cards will use images from those. I am a beginner in watercolor arts and some other media. All of my cards are handmade. They are not "prints".
My original watercolors are here at Art In Hand.

Leonardo's Leda

This new card utilizes 2 hand carved stamps I did in August of 2006.
Each card is hand stamped and signed.
These are not commercial prints.
The main image is based on a Leonardo DaVinci sketch "The Study of Leda". The next depicts Leonardo's signature as he usually signed in his personal notebooks.

Leonardo wrote backwards, from right to left and it is rumored that sometimes he wrote with both hands at once. Leonardo did begin consciously signing and writing "correctly" left to right when the work was intended for someone other than himself or the public.
