Watercolor Greeting Cards

By Nancymccarroll
Back last spring, when insomnia and I began our current relationship, I chose to use the early morning hours to paint (instead of complaining there were too many unproductive hours in the day). Coffee tasted better at 2 or 3 am, when I had the run of the kitchen and sweets were the only foods that remained palatable because of Ibrance.  So, coffee, cookie(s) and a paintbrush were in hand while I half-way watched reruns of Midsomer Murders. A year ago, it was rocks that I painted.

Discs were kind of intriguing, but I could give away only so many.  And they were a real bust on Etsy, so I closed up my Etsy shop fairly soon after opening it. No wealth there.

Back in May of 2017, I was still painting rocks, interspersed with paintings for my study and one acrylic canvas for a friend.

Next I went on to painting Christmas cards. I really enjoyed making them, and watched YouTube videos for some differing ways to mount small pieces of watercolor.
