Phrenology postcard

Phrenology is the topic at Sunday Postcard Art this week. Well, to be honest, I had only a vague idea what it is, so I looked it up. The Chambers Dictionary defines it as the "would be science of mental faculties supposed to be located in various parts of the skull and investigable by feeling the bumps on the outside of the head." I think I share their scepticism! Anyway, here's the piece I created.

This is a wonderful piece, Jackie. The use of the Van Gogh quote is brilliant, as is the color and the word "cognizant"! Go to the head of the class and take a bow. APPLAUSE from my corner!

Stunning! I've never heard that van Gogh-quote before but I think it suits the subject perfectly and the way you've worked it into your card is way cool.
