To get ready for a Christmas sale, I've been doing a series of cards. Each festive little piece is a pen and ink drawing --with hits of gold paint and red watercolour-- done on 140 lb. watercolour paper, and mounted on standard size, quarter fold cardstock.
I played around with cheery, simple images, tucking Art Deco embellishments here and there.
I would like to share with you a quick sketch I did this fall.
It was a sunny-crisp Saturday just after Thanksgiving. The leaves were a riot of colour, the sun igniting their blazing hues. I sat on the sand and got out my watercolours, enjoying the shapes of bridge and buildings and valley.
For me, that moment was a sigh in my busy autumn, and this picture reminds me of the peace and pure enjoyment of that special Saturday trip to the park.
