Art: Abundant Friendship ACEO by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
This is my entry in the October Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please be sure to search for NFAC to see more great entries, each starting at just 99.

This month's theme is Native/Tribal. My entry is an Art Card done in a technique called chasing. This technique uses a chisel to inscribe a line and texture in metal, in this case, copper. I have used three Native American symbols that roughly translate as friendship (crossed arrows), abundance (big mountain), and good prospects (rainclouds). Together they form a message of a good future prospects in friendship or from friendships. This would make a wonderful gift with a hopeful message or a great addition to your art collection. Chasing is a rare technique to find in a format like Art Card.

The metal has had the application of a patina to darken the lines and increase the contrast. My hallmark appears in the lower right corner.
