August 31st (1)

A gift of blank cards for my Mother-in-law.  She is one who still sends hand written cards and letters regularly, and she always seems to have the perfect card for just the right occasion. This month is her birthday and I hope that she likes them.  There is something so satisfying about giving a love-made gift.

Six deckled cards with matching envelopes.

Sweet Potato Vine

Sweet Potato Vine

After watching for a few weeks as an organic sweet potato sprouted and grew leaves on my kitchen counter, I finally planted it outside in a pot.  This is what it looked like a few days ago, but today it’s 3x bigger.

Sketchbook Botanical Study

A sketchbook study for a painting in progress.  Looking at the photo, I see I overdid the white.  It was an opaque white so  I think that a transparent white in the final painting will work better.
