As Tender As Rose Petals

A friend’s new born granddaughter inspired this card and motivated me to search for an image of a rose that would suit a new born’s innocence and celebrate her name. At first I tried loose petals which reminded me of the wall paper my Mother had in our living room when I was a child. I also tried a deep red rose which presented an image that seemed too mature for a baby. Then I found a white rose tipped with deep pink. It was lovely to watch the color spread and bleed into the flower, a technique that is better than meditation. Although it took me longer to finalize this, it was a wholly satisfying experience when I looked at the finished card.

After a diverse career in Corporate America, I am freeing myself of a ton of ego traps; chief among them is "perfectionism." Watercolor, when left to its own devices and imperfections seems to create something more beautiful than intended. I am still a student and love the learning journey. Sharing that with friends and family in the form of greeting cards, has been a surprise filled with joy.
