I can’t get enough of these crazy Hahnemühle Post Cards.
I am so swamped with deadlines right now I barely have time to make marks,
but I have a stack of these next to my bed in a tin and I can grab one middle-of-the-night, and draw a flower, a Buddha, a silliness for Mitchell.
I draw in pencil, ink, then erase.
They are clipped to a cardboard mailer for painting.
I helps the edges from curling ever-so-slightly.
Then while I am doing my gotta-make-a-living thang,
I can have these sitting at my little watercolor desk at work and
splash color on during breaks… A portable watercolor kit with waterbrush would do!
My 95-year-old mom received this for Mother’s Day
with a gift of things to eat she can’t get near her…
You can bet it’ll make her cry — the beauty of handmade!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers everywhere…
