I took a watercolor of a tree I "did" and put it on a "background" from my Card Program, and added the "Merry Christmas" in white for the greeting. I liked the way the background almost made it look 3-D, or in layers. We have been delivering Tins with GingerbreadBoy Cookies to our shut-ins from Church. I mentioned this in my last post (below). Tomorrow I will get all the family gift cards together for our Christmas Day Family Celebration. Love it!
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.
