Thursday nite we went to Mitchell's Seafood for dinner...really good! I started to draw the salt shaker and pepper grinder and then noticed the "wallpaper with a porthole and maps" on one of the walls, so decided to use it for my background. It does keep me painting. I had Pecan encrusted Whitefish and Cliff had a Seafood Combo (I think it had Salmon, Scallops, and some kind of whitefish). Looked good. He had some Oysters to start (ooeeww! not me) so I had a lettuce wedge with house dressing.
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.
