We finally got 3 full blooms on the Amaryllis. Woo-H00!!! It took about 2 and a half months :-) I thought it was only going to be a beanstalk without a bloom--but stuck with it and here we go. You can see on earlier posts I took some photos to show how tall it was--it actually grew the flowers up in between the hanging lights over our Kitchen Table. This is my last mention of these, I promise :-)
This is the first page in my new (second, hand-bound) sketchbook journal.
I used some kosher salt when the paint was wet to give it some interest (?)
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.
