Rose Hip Study, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair
I have a cute little tin case (pencil box) filled with watercolour pencils, an indelible ink marker, a small round brush, plus a pencil sharpener. This treasure box is the first thing into my luggage when we go on vacation... or if I want to go out into the world for a day of exploration and drawing. Sometimes, I 'pretend' to be out exploring (sort of like having a picnic indoors when the weather is bad) and set up a cosy spot in my studio and play. Often these play dates lead to larger oil paintings and sometimes they are cute just on their own.
*My Poppy Greeting Cards are moving fast. Check them out... click here for the 'Square' format, or here for the 'Rectangle' format.
Here are some of the gift ideas they are can be used for:
Holiday Hostess Gift, Office exchange, Secret Santa, Stocking Stuffer, Thank You, Employee appreciation, and so far the most unique idea is to use them individually as .... (drum roll please) 'Place Markers' for a dinner party! (I think the rectangle ones would work best for that)
