I tried to capture these pouffy clouds on the way Downtown (Detroit) last Friday--We were going to Sindbad's on the Detroit River for their "Clams & Chips." We rarely eat fried foods these days...but decided to have one last fling before the summer was over.:-) Sindbad's is a great Seafood place and attracts many people to the Marina (on the Detroit River) out front. Then they come in and eat. Anyway, CC is painting the Fall Cloud patterns, and I am making a "stab" at joining her.
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.
