” Angel” Card with Envelope $4


Welcome to my December Blog! It is in the air and I can feel it: the joy of the holidays! In November, I worked on drawing and painting my small pictures. The mediums I used were watercolor, gouache, pen and ink. Each one was placed in a black 5”x5”wooden frame. The frame has a hanger and pedestal on the back so it can be hung on a wall or sit on a shelf. I decided to use one of the paintings of an angel for a new Christmas card. The cards and paintings were delivered to the Hub on Canal for their Gallery of Gifts that started November 25th and closes Christmas Eve.
