I don't have a card to share today. As a matter of fact it's been a couple of weeks since I last managed to do anything crafty. I can't lie, as much as I really miss crafting I'm finding it hard to balance things. I really need to find a way. At any rate, I mentioned in my last post how much I was enjoying seeing everyone share their 'watercolor' creations and that it inspired me to get out my watercolor pencils to color that sweet Great Impressions image.
I painted watercolors for quite some time. Though I occasionally did pieces as large as 20"x30" the vast majority of my work was much smaller. Mostly I painted as a hobby, but not unlike my card making I soon found myself with a LOT of paintings stacking up and I decided to clean out by selling them. I was actually pleasantly surprised to ultimately sell them all (except for a couple I couldn't part with) and to be able to pocket a several hundred dollars too. Here are a few that I thought I'd share with you.
|Laundry Day 5" x 7"|
|Red Striped Awnings 8"x 10"|
|Sunflower 20" x 30"|
I imagine that some day I may lay down my scissors and tape gun and head back to painting watercolors. Interestingly, I firmly believe when/if I do the time I spent crafting and card making will have only made me better since creating is, in my opinion, a never-ending, intertwined road where practice in one area makes you better in others.
