I love getting mail, snail mail not the junk variety. Living abroad makes any mail from across the pond a life line to my native home. Todays busy lives of multitasking and click and send means a handwritten note is extra special! With the holiday season coming up don’t overlook the opportunity to send a hand written note or a hand painted card to family and friends. These little watercolor paintings are my way of saying thank you. #notcoincidental #cybermonday #grateful #gratefulmonday #thankful #thankfulmonday #snailmail #watercolor #penandink #flower #flowerpainting #thankyou #thankyounote #handmadegift #buyhandmade #handmade

This inspiration journey has led me now to start adding color. But I really liked the ink art too. I have been focused on digital illustrating for a long stretch and really missed the tactile feeling of real paper and a real brush. And as I type this I am now itching to recreate digitally too! Oh my…..I LOVE IT ALL!!! 😄 Big big thank you to @schnauzerkira for Kira has been a super inspiration to me!! We have a neighbor schnauzer and he is just so handsome but unfortunately he and Dexter don’t jive 🙁 #schnauzer #dog #portrait #penandink #watercolor #inspiration #onmydesk #backtothedrawingboard #findingmyzen #dowhatmakesyouhappy
