I have been doing a few little postcards to take along on the
trip...to get ahead a little! I sell these to other travelers in
the large group tour, and I wanted to stock pile some.
I used some watercolor, and some ink. I also used a circle
cut out to splatter paint around to make the moon shape. I used a
stiff brush to splatter the paint with. I also got to use my
little signature stamp! Not long now!!

|We leave for China in just a few days! One of my art teacher travelers |
said he had already done his opening page in his sketchbook, so I
thought I would get started as well! So, here is my first page in
the China travel sketchbook. I sketched it in pencil, using photos
in my Fodor's Guidebook to China, and then painted it with
watercolor. I also used my little signature stamp! (It says "Gail" in
Chinese...who could tell?!) I usually do this while waiting in
the airport, but now I can just "people watch" in New Orleans, Louisiana,
Atlanta Georgia, Tokyo, and then Beijing!
You can check back, and I will be updating the
pages as we go. Should be a great, colorful, and unique trip.
|Got this finished today...all framed and ready to be shipped to Texas.|
|This one is finished as well. She has seen them, and likes them, |
so I am happy! I'm sure the wedding will be beautiful. I will get to
be there, and join in the celebration.

|I have a niece in Texas that recently asked me to do some artwork for |
her upcoming wedding, Aug 10th. She is using the flowers above: blue hydrangeas,
cream roses, white stephanotis, etc
|She wants a pair of signs to use at the wedding...this smaller one with "Forever starts |
Today". She said she really liked my colored pencil work, and wanted this one
done in that media. She is also using silver, so I used that to do the
I still have to finish the other sign, and will post it when finished.

Another project to be done before I leave for China. A man in Baton
Rouge saw the sign I had done several years ago on this blog,
and contacted me about doing one for him. I finally found some
wood I could use; I pieced it together, and I started painting it
yesterday. I have some outlining to do, and tweaking, but should
be finished tomorrow.
