Watercolor, pencils and a pleasant afternoon

I'm just relaxing and kicking a few old ideas around. On the card I started with a detail view of an old acrylic painting and thought I'd try the idea in watercolor and see how that worked out. A friend of mine commented on how much her letter carrier enjoys all of the envelope art and it gives them a chance to talk so I feel good about that too.

For decades I've been doing roses on my envelopes. I like these mixed media ones best.

The landscapes need work. I plan to spend more time by the lake this summer to see if that will improve my technique.

Some of these work out better than others but everyone enjoys a bit of fun and color in the mail.
