Greetings!

Hi! I recently made some new greeting card designs on the theme of 'Get Well Soon', 'Thinking of You' and 'New Home'. I thought it would be nice to have a continuous 'circular' design theme in the shape of flowers on stems (with the illustrations inside the circle). all are painted in gouache paints.....my first try with these! I find them lovely to work with :)

'New Home'
'Thinking of You'

    
'Get Well Soon' OR 'Get Whale Soon'








































I thought the greeting on this could have the fun saying 'Get Whale Soon' either on the front of the card or inside?

Caring for Toadstools

I have painted this little watercolour for my dad for Father's Day this Sunday. I painted some of it in my garden the other day.....then it started to rain. However, the effect the rain drops created on my painting looked fantastic....I think they look like there is a magical presence on the tree surrounding the gnome. I love happy accidents! :)
