A Letter for Tom

It has been way too long since I last wrote to my brother, Thomas, who is in Brazil. So today, I finally sat down and wrote to him-- just a short little note. I wish that I would have made the card bigger so I could have said more...

I didn't have a plan when I started. I just went crazy with the masking fluid and colors. I quite like the result. I hope Tom does, too.

I love quotes. I feel that for everything that I want to say, someone has already said it much more eloquently than I ever could. So, as usual, I wrote one of my favorite quotes that I thought Tom might find applicable to his life in Brazil:
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow.'"
-Mary Anne Radmacher

Modern Floral Watercolor 5

I got a new handmade watercolor pallet from Designs by Rachel Beth on Etsy and I couldn't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about how this one turned out-- especially the yellow rose shape. That one didn't turn out so great the last time I tried it. I think using a smaller brush helped.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.
