Went to Carrabba's Restaurant several nights ago and tried to sketch some of the
guests at the next table. Like I said, not much to sketch these days because we are always trying to keep out of the cold :-)
It seems I'm not doing too much sketching/watercoloring these days besides taking Sermon Notes in Church. It has been so cold and snowy--that we "stay in" keeping warm, etc. It's all white outside (snow) so not much to sketch that is new. Well, I do try to keep the "notes" colorful.
Pastor is teaching the Book of Daniel in the series "Cover to Cover" (going thru the whole Bible) by subject. I like to take notes to keep me focused, and Drawing in Church is interesting.... We have had some really cold temperatures here in SE Michigan. This morning when we left for Church, it was minus 9 degrees :-)
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.
