Some of my cards
I've taken watercolor classes for several years and started combining my calligraphy with the paintings. Now I do many of the cards with just the paintings on them. Some are a combination of my plein aire painting class in the summer where we paint on site in private gardens and select places like a nursery near Joliet or the Morton Arboretum and some are studio work. They depict the beauty of nature that I love and the soft pastel colors. Also there is a series of mixed media cards that combine washes of color in the background and papers and pressed flowers with quotes on the side. I think I included three of them in this post.
