Sharing some of my COVID snail mail. These have added JOY and LIGHT to my life. I know there have been others, some were shared as part of an exchange. If I have forgotten anyone, I apologize. Just know that your card was very much EnJOYed and appreciated! Thank you all!
This hand painted card was oversized. There are silver circle details throughout. It’s really too bad metallics don’t scan well. Delightful!
May you stay safe and well as we begin the return to “normal”.

It looks like a stack of Easter eggs to me. Messy experimental cacti. I thought it might be good for a laugh. I used leftover gouache. I added one color at a time and thought I could go back and blend. But they did not want to cooperate. The few areas where blending occurred, started to get muddy. Next time I will use multiple brushes and blend while the paint is wet.
I found calm in the process. Fun in seeing the vibrant colors.
I had an appointment today, and I was able to see the trees filled with pink and white blooms. So pretty. I was behind a semi in town, and he bumped against some of them, made it rain pretty white petals.
It has remained cold. So there is still snow on the mountain. Today it was glowing brightly in the sunlight.
A few of my favorite things for today.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you wellness!
