Throwback Thursday: My Favorite Necklace and Fun with Holiday Cards

Left: The full holiday card, probably 1985 because we didn't have the girls yet. And they became the focus of our cards. You can see the cover, inside panel, and back panel.

Exquisite Corpse with Wet Paint

I then drew my sketch with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and painted with Daniel Smith Acrylics, using large filberts—about 1- and 2-inches wide. Click on […]
