Postcards from My Garden

June 4, 2008 | By | 4 Replies More


A card for a friend – it’s ready to go in the mail tomorrow. These little 4×6 postcards are just the thing to keep in practice with paints and such when time is short.

I sketched the plant and flower head in pencil, quickly painted with watercolor, lettered and inked with a black gel pen. Overworking with the pen is always a danger, so I let it rest a bit before finishing up. It took hardly any time at all from the garden and my back porch.

    So pretty. I should have some lillies in about 3 weeks, but I don’t know what kind they are (the gardens pre-dated me by about 30? years and I am trying my best to bring them back to life after years of neglect). I love a moonlight garden. I always have at least one spot that’s all white.
