It was such a beautiful day on Friday--we decided to take a jaunt up to Port Huron (Michigan) and watch some of the Freighters go up and down the River and under the Blue Water Bridge. The Thomas Edison Museum is right there under the bridge. I did the watercolors the last time we were up there. My husband took the picture of the Freighter going under the bridge. No wonder they call it the Blue Water Bridge! Had a fun time, and stopped at the River Crab in St. Clair for a late lunch outside under an umbrella.
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.
