Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter influenced by fellow countryman and artist, Vincent van Gogh. He began as an Expressionist but during WWI began studying the theories of Cubist painting and the absolute properties of artistic order. This eventually led him to the abstract style he is known for today…two dimensional geometric designs created from straight lines, rectangles, and simplistic colors-black, white and the primaries. The designs of line and color create areas that are so well balanced that no space is more important than the other and the viewer’s eye is pulled equally to each area. The tension created by the lines and rectangles reaches the very edge of the canvas which also illustrates the perfect balance of his paintings. His work was the foundation for the De Stijl movement of pure abstraction.

Christine and A. Marie between school and unexpected company, I am going to be running a little late with my cards but it shouldn't be more than a week. I hope that is not a problem.

I'm just seeing this Stacy. No worries at all! Please check your inbox when you have a moment. Thank you. :)

Theresa, Stacy , going to post your cards now :)

Somehow managed to end up sending my Mondrian cards late! Not sure how it happened; I thought I was on top of this one!
Anyway, they are on their way now, Dabau and Sharon. Sorry for the delay and I hope you like them!

No worries Bill, and I'm sure we'll like them :)

Hi all-   Posting photos of the Mondrian inspired ATCs I received from Theresa Graeve.  They are great and like color choices!   (sorry-  photo I took it not real good).   Theresa also included some fun & creative goodies for my stash.  THANKS SO MUCH !!   Lisa

Here are the lovely creative Mondrian inspired cards I received today from Lisa Hamilton. Love them Lisa _Sorry the color is a little off in the photo. In reality the colours on the cards are much more vibrant Red , Yellow and Blue . Thank you also for all the other goodies you included. They will be fun to work with.

Very cool !!, Lisa !
