On New Year's Day--looking for something to "watercolor" I spied my Amaryllis (that was supposed to bloom at Christmas). It's somewhat behind, I think! It's supposed to be kept in a south window (for sunlight and warmth) which we don't have too much of this time of the year. So I painted it to show how it looked on January 1st. We had snow outside--but not too much sunshine! In fact, for about 5 days in a row, NO SUN at all! I had a "little talk" with Ammy and she seems to be growing a little taller now :-) Maybe I'll even get 2 blooms....I'll keep you posted!
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.
