Garden Watercolor doodling is always enjoyable. This is a Japanese watercolor board. The back has nice gold leaf, and the front has a few flowers scattered on the board. Painting in between the three dimentional enhancement is fun. When I was finished I took a nail and hammered two hole to allow me to thread a lovely french ribbon for hanging.

This is my absolute favourite, Karen. Your signature piece, to me at least, as it is the one that led me to you on Flickr, it is the most beautiful work of Art. Thank you for sharing your inspirational work, and your precious self.

Blessings, always...

Thank you Suze, My favorite things are always the simple ones. Better than painting some serious oil or watercolor, I love to paint scenes like this one. Perhaps that is why we are kindred spirits, you once again discerned who I really am. Blessings, Karen

About Me

My photo
I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
