Two cards....



This watercolor postcard came yesterday. Lizzzie made it to thank us for our hospitality last week. I love the indigo and really like the stems on the pears too!

Wonderful work Lizzzie!

I wonder what the saying means....????? [Should we tell Santa? it is signed "ELF"]


*********************************************************************************

The next card is one that my daughter requested I do for her....[I guess there aren't many limits on what I will do for her!]

She wanted and original caricature style Christmas card drawing of her family and dog in front of their home. Now this was a challenge as I had to work from assorted photos and just group them on my own. Besides, I do landscapes and still life, not cartoons or portraits! I kept thinking of the Caroline's Crayons blog while I did this...it was not a fast undertaking!

postscript....the granddaughter wants her skirt to be green. I think I can do that! Back to the colored pencils now!

What a beautiful card from your friend! I know you enjoyed her visit. Love the sweet card you made for your granddaughter, too! You are so talented!

The two cards are very different, though both are great!

I didn't realize Lizzzy was such an artist. Tell her how much I liked her painting.

And your Christmas Card is too cool! Wow, no wonder your daughter asked her to design her cards this year.
