In Which Watercolors Are Used

"Because watercolor actually moves on the paper, it is the most active of all mediums, almost a performance art."

~Nita Engle

Last week, I had occasion (several occasions -- birthdays and a late Mother's Day!) to make some greeting cards.  I sat myself down with art pens and Dr. Pepper, determined to finish my cards before the day was through.  Whipping out my watercolor sets, I went to work with a right good will, and here you have the results.  


"Peacock Feathers"

"Red Stag, Scotland"



"Queen Bee"


The following pics are the outside and inside, respectively, of a birthday card I made for my mother-in-law -- who, luckily for me, has a great sense of humor!
