Aleatoric cards

This year's cards started out as full sheet watercolor paper paintings in acrylic and then, when dry, folded and torn in half until I get 16 cards from each sheet. The process is random although I do control the flow of the wet paint to some degree using gravity, a hair drier and a spray bottle. Sometimes near the end I do use my fingers and maybe a tool. The cropping is random because the final image depends on what image ends up on the torn pieces. These pictures are of the two full sheet papers before I began tearing them
