West Africa


A multiplex if you will of Countries that make up West Africa and we, the World Travelers, had a choice of the 12 to pick for our Weekly Postcard … ie the 52 Postcard Challenge as brought to us by Darcy the Fab also known as the Fab owner of Art and Sole.

I picked the Country of Togo West Africa and drew and painted and collaged and stamped this week’s card

from Liz to Allen: Acrylic paint, rubber stamp on top of scrapbook paper, glossy finish on stamped words


and it reads 

Oh WOW Allen,
too bad - the trust between you two is a one way street…maybe you should consider a change. I say that only as a friend. I love the faces of these Togolese women in Sokodé. I couldn’t understand what the celebration was about, but I had a super time.

Soon my friend,
                        Liz



Oooo it looks like with the upcoming meeting Liz is beginning to become personal by offering advice to Allen. What will his reply be?

ps one of the faces shown above was featured (of sorts) as Face #16 for the 29 Faces in May Challenge. Can you tell which lady it is?

Happy Art’in Y’all
