Painted Postcards | Kindness and Love

All the Painted Postcards are finished! I really like how they turned out, and wanted to share them as individual pieces and turned right, not just as I painted them four on a piece of paper.

So here we go! Painted postcard no 1 above, by me iHanna: Kram.

Kram is Swedish and means Hug, which is something I don’t mind sending out and giving. I think everyone could need a hug from time to time, don’t you?

This Little Guy don’t have a greeting to go along with him, but he wishes all good to you and yours. I think he is a dreamer, imagining his next painting or fantasy story.

Painted postcard no 2 by iHanna: I hope you’re fine.

I bet he is best friend with this Little Girl with her red-orange pig-tails:

Painted postcard no 3 by iHanna: Spread some Kindness – with a handmade postcard.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy

And the last postcard for today is about giving love, which also is something we should live by and do more of. Not just to family and close friends, but to the world in general.

Personally I’d love to know what you think of these postcards. Which one is your favorite, and why?

    These are all so cute! If I HAD to pick a favorite, it would probably be the “Spread Kindness” girl. My postcards are all done too. I need to take a picture and share on Instagram!

    I like “spread kindness” the best too! I love the colors you used for this postcard, and the message is great too (but of course, all the messages are great!). I love the girl figure too – so cute!

    They are all wonderful! I think that my favorite is the girl with the red hair (Kindness), but it is really hard to choose!

    Thank you for sharing them with us!

  6. Jacqueline says:

    All the postcards are quite lovely. It is really hard to choose. But if I had to choose only one, I would pick the “Give Love” girl.
