Let it snow!

I made 2 special cards for Christmas 2020. One a Snowman, the other a Bird. Each one teased my creativity while offering different reflections.

The Snowman. Consider that for one season in the year, the Snowman braves the elements. Alas, in the end, it melts away, leaving memories of good cheer and loads of fun in the making.

The Bird. I think this is a Bluebird. At least that’s my story. I love watching these birds flit through our neighborhood. They just makes me smile. Did you know some birds hibernate during winter, others fatten up and fluff their feathers to trap heat and conserve energy? Can we relate to that this year? So this seemed a fitting image for 2020.

We may have fattened up, slowed down and conserved energy this year. Needless to say we have braved the elements for nearly 10 months. We surely can shake off any lethargy and like the snowman bravely face upward and forward with renewed creativity and resilience. Come on 2021! I am ready!

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.
