Janis mentions that she got some cards from me recently. It was really nifty to get a chance to sell things with my paintings on them. As I told Janis, it was also the kick in the pants that I needed to start painting again. I finished one painting a few days ago, that I'm fairly pleased with though it isn't my best work, and I have some ideas for better things to come.

Doing something creative and being able to say I do something creative besides caring for a house, kids, and a garden seems to be good for my mental health, no matter how important I think the house, kids and garden are.

If you all want to see some of my watercolors, here's the link.


Wow! Those are excellent!

I know the feeling.
I am working hard to turn the garage into my studio. It has been so long since I have painted anything.
Hard to find the time!

Your watercolors are stunning. Love them. Particularly the poppies. You are way talented and should well be proud of the creative stuff you do. :)
