I received this very pretty notecard and a wonderful art card from Margaret Ann - oh, the atc is so much prettier in person than you can see here in the scan! Titled "Stained Glass Blossom Series #3," it is a complex yet delicate sunflower. I love the blue but also am in love with the curling vine around the stem.
Thank you so much, MA/Peg :) Hope you get mine soon and enjoy it as much as I will enjoy this one. I now have 3 of your wonderful art cards!!!
The artists I have met in this blog-o-sphere have been so generous with their talent and skills and their knowledge, too. I'm always so pleased to have positive things to spice up the day and overpower the negative we see sometimes in our lives.
For my sketch of the finches on the feeder, I just couldn't leave them in graphite - too boring! So took some pastel pencils I got at one of the watercolor society "flea market sales" and put some color on them. I may have done too much (not sure how to work well with pastels yet) but I like the touches of color better than the graphite. This is in my Exacompta 5 1/2" x 8" sketchbook.
