November, I like it OK





You have to search for color now, and if you paint you can enhance it as you choose.
We have fog in November and December and when it lifts it can be beautiful outside.
Water turns dark like the sky, the contrast of snow patches give paintings some sparkle.

Sometimes I feel bad that I don't do as much of tis as I use to, so today I did some I will use them on Christmas cards also. The joke is I don't send that many cards, the supply of choices is growing. I will make some as gifts, I have lots of envelopes to include and they can send them as winter greetings of some sort. They look nice in a little stack tied with a ribbon. One can make a packet with paper, co a collage to attatch to the outside of the packet. I have several packages of those little colored brads that you poke through paper and bend the back to fasten the packet together. BTW, this is sounding like a lot of time and work, the mental image has appeal tho.

Emelie, I LOVE your watercolors!! There is just so much depth in your pictures. And, I feel the cool breeze, the crisp, frozen ground, and *feel* what I feel when I'm out in surroundings like these. Thanks!!

Wow Emilie! I'd sure like to be able to paint scenery such as this, but alas I've never been able to. I love you cards. Someone will be very happy. Excellent! Have a great weekend.
