More art completed.

I've been really loving watercolors these days. I never thought I'd be able to say that so many years ago. I've had very little time to do much art, but what I have done has been in fits and starts. I really need to fit in a bit more time. I feel so much better when I've done some art for the day. It really clears my mind.

This project was called the "Magical/Miracle Hand" we had do draw a hand and decorate it and then send it as a postcard. I was inspired to trace my own hand and Val's to celebrate what my hands do as a mother. I was just going to decorate his and mine in blue and pink, but once I got his little hand decorated, I was inspired to write a message to him. I really should have copied it down though I think I can read most of it in the high resolution photo. I love the way it turned out, and I think I'm going to do this for his first birthday invites. Do another with his changed hand size. I think for the next six months, I'll be tracing our hands together so we can see how much it changes in size until he turns one.

I've got a lot of trading card projects in the works and a few handmade postcards too.
