Gulf Coast Garden Club

Last summer I had the privilege of creating a poster for the Gulf Coast Garden Club. The poster was created on a full sheet of 140# Arches Hot Press watercolor paper. After writing the text in masking fluid, the background was created with washes of fluid acrylic. The mask was then removed and the drop shadow added to the organization's name. The calligraphy is my interpretation of Ismar David's Rustic hand.

Each verse written in watercolor on 140# Fabriano soft press watercolor paper.
The finish of this paper is between cold press and hot press
 and is a lovely paper to write and paint on.

Psalm 32:7

Psalm 62:8

Plank Digits

Plans for the future are coming a little closer. My husband and I will be building a home in the hills of Tennessee within the next 3 years. We made the progress of acquiring an address for the property. Eager to mark it as a tangible starting point, I created a marker for the entrance.

All I had to work with was a Sharpie. I guess I will touch it up as needed in the days to come.
