I'm trying to "journal/watercolor" in my book often--so I'm posting things from my everyday life. This was at the Dermatologist's office this morning. I can't resist asking about a project I see someone working on. This lady had to make several embroidered (cross-stitched) quilts because her niece was having boy and girl twins--which of course I was able to chime in that I have boy and girl twins (however,I did have to admit that my twins are having their 56th (OUCH!) birthday this week. :-) In my day, we didn't have ultrasounds to know if they were boys or girls (or one of each :-) BTW, if you didn't recognize it, that's a Teddy Bear she is working on.
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.
