Christmas Card Painting

5"x 7" Watercolor & Ink on 140 lb Paper
My weekly open studio workshop at the Delmarva Discovery Center demo this week was about painting the master image for a Christmas Card. I also talked about how to send them to get them printed and a little about how to print them at home. I painted this little folk-art-style church scene as an example. We had fun deciding what the participants wanted to paint for their own cards and some actually painted theirs. I generally do not send cards but may actually send a few this year. Click on the image to see it better. I hope you like this little sketch!

Cottage in Sunshine

9"x12" Watercolor & Ink on 140 lb Paper
I used a local one-room schoolouse as inspiration for this cottage painting. I had lots of fun with this one that was done on a weekend RV trip. Check out my photography blog to see photos that I took of the beautiful scenes around the area. Click here to go see them! I hope you enjoy this little painting.
