First postcard

I thank everyone for their positive reaction to my first "It's A New Day" card. I got requests to post it to the Carving Consortium site, so it is in the photos section there for people who are not in this swap. On election night I was rivetted to the TV and I noted down some of the inspiring words Obama used. The image is my representation of all those hands raised in Grant Park and around the country. I chose red and black because they are strong colors reflecting the intense response of people of every background and age to the need for change and the hard work it will take to achieve it.

Happy New Year!
