Yesterday I went to the Northville Market for some fresh strawberries--and they were awesome (looking & tasting). The Sugar Peas are in--so so I bought those too, and we have enjoyed using them for a snack. I made some Freezer Jam with the strawberries--it looks so good. This morning I went out with my camera to record my hanging up baskets and how they are blossoming profusely! It's nice to see the sun after only a week (of rain and cool). These are all sketches/watercolors that I have done previously in my sketchbook.
About 15 years ago, a friend enouraged me to come to a watercolor class. That was the beginning of a hobby that I truly enjoy.
A few years later, I joined a "Watercolor Sketchbook Journal" class taught by Catherine Carey author of "A Petoskey Watercolor Journal." see: www.catherinestudio.blogspot.com/
Since then we have taken many trips and watercolored and journaled most of them.
My husband and I are now retired and we both enjoy ministering to people through our Church. He does Hospital visits and ministers to the elderly. I have found that sending people greeting cards with my simple watercolor sketches on them seem to be treasured.
God has greatly enriched our lives with Beauty and I like to show my gratitude by displaying His Glory in my art. I'm hoping that my watercolors bring joy to others, and praise and worship to our Creator. Marj. M.
