A to Z starter
Today is Day V of the April A to Z Challenge. There are well over a thousand people taking part. Be sure to check out the website.
My theme is art quote cards by famous people. The cards are 4″ by 4 1/2″,usually with a gelli print background, a used stamp of the person and a quote by them. It is an ongoing project.
(For today’s people, I did not have stamps so had to use photos.)
V is for Voltaire
“François-Marie Arouet, (1694 – 1778) known by his nom de plume Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church”. Wikipedia
V is for Jules Verne
“Jules Gabriel Verne (1828 – 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his profound influence on the literary genre of science fiction.” Wikipedia
With my husband in hospital for almost two weeks, I did not do much artwork or blogging (or even writing). Now that he is home, I decided to take some extra time today to play catch-up with this challenge.Here are the cards I created for N, O, P
N is for Numbers (I had lots of stamps with numbers but no famous person – so chose this quote by Plato)
O is for Severo Ochoa
“Severo Ochoa de Albornoz (1905 – 1993) was a Spanish physician and biochemist, and joint winner of the 1959 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Arthur Kornberg.” Wikipedia
P is for a number of people – I couldn’t choose just one!
P is for Picasso (one of my favourite artists)
P is for Rosa Parks
“Rosa Louise McCauley Parks(1913 – 2005) was an African-American Civil Rights activist, whom the United States Congress called “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”. Wikipedia
P is for Dorothy Parker
“Dorothy Parker (1893 – 1967) was an American poet, short story writer, critic and satirist, best known for her wit, wisecracks, and eye for 20th-century urban foibles.” Wikipedia
