I loved the picture that Catherine posted on her blog showing all the snow in their neighborhood...That red House really stood out in all that white and gray! They sure have a ton of snow up there (NW Mich) in Petoskey. Today in SE Michigan, it's 63' and like a Spring Day. But it won't last long, light rain tonight after midnight and only in the low 50's tomorrow--and downhill from there :-)
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.
