    American Southwest hp/hd. I have always been inspired by the beauty of the American Southwest and have traveled there often.

Hand Painted or Hand Drawn only please.

    • If you have a personal story about the location or theme of your card that you'd like to share, include it on the card and/or in the thread. Those make cards extra special!

    I'm lurking on this one - I'm starting to love doing scenery and it'd be great to add some SW cards to my travel collection!
    Traveling the world one ATC at a time - see where I still need to go!

    Just updated the op. I forgot to remove the info about national parks... It should be correct now.

    Let's channel our inner Georia O'Keeffe!

    Anyone wanna play?

    I have cards that I never got to complete for your national parks swap. Are you counting southern Utah as southwest? I have cards almost finished from Zion, Arches, and Saguaro...

    Please sign me up...I am always looking for HP/HD swaps. And talking about channeling our "inner Georgia O'Keffe"...a number of years ago I took a class in Photographing in the Style of Georgia O"Keffe. We stayed at the ranch where she lived in NM and took photos of places she painted. I have visions of pulling out my old photos and using them as a guide for painting.

    You said these don't need to be landscapes. Could some of your cards be more Georgia O'Keefe like with cow skulls and southwestern plants, for example?

    As long as it is inspired by the American SW, it's all good! We don't want something that can come from other parts of the world though... I hope this makes sense...
