Awhile back Sharon sent me a pack of ATCs (artist trading cards) with assorted surfaces, like bristol and canvas-textured, which is especially nice as I like to try different surfaces. I decided to paint a different flower on each one and started today with these.

(2.5x3.5 each)

An ice sculpture hanging from my bayberry bush (and endangering anyone who ventures up my front steps).

Hi Laura,

Okay -- I'm not coming up your front steps today -- but the flowers are gorgeous. I love the way you paint in watercolour -- it's everything I love about the medium. (We spell it differently in Canada).

Take care,

Beautiful flowers - looking forward to seeing the others on the different textures. That's quite a scary ice sculpture!!!

These are gorgeous Laura. Glad you are putting the cards to use, and what a great antidote to those icicles! The poppy turned out especially sweet. Really, your daily artwork inspires me.

They're wonderful! I love the simplicity with no backgrounds, letting the flowers speak for themselves!

Always fun to experiment with different papers, its like they have personalities rather than characteristics.

Love the ATCs.. beautiful colors.
Yikes that is a wicked icicle. :))

You've painted a spring tonic, Jennifer! I'm squeezing my eyes shut, stuffing my fingers in my ears and singing loudly to not see or think about icicles!

Amazing--that ice is gorgeous--how wonderful you captured it with this photo! The flowers are, indeed gorgeous.
