We took a little jaunt arount one of our MetroParks--just to see how All the Autumn colors were doing. Kensington has a huge Lake and a wonderful Bike/Walking Path that goes around the whole Lake....and people really use it! Lots of walkers, cyclists, Moms with strollers, DogWalkers :-) and some just having a great time walking or jogging. I went to the Nature Center and sketched some of the waning Fall Wildflowers that are breathing their "last." Lots of Cattails, Purple Asters, White Asters, Thistle, Milkweed, and an abandoned Duck Box (Birdhouse). Lots of red/orange Maples, and the Birch Trees are now covered with yellow leaves. I love Fall, but it is TOO SHORT a Season!
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.
