 This is a Yellow-Crested Stork from Botswana. Photo by Patrick Hedges on Wetcanvas. When I saw the photo, I just had to draw and paint it.  Watercolors, colored pencils, and pens.  9x12 inches in Strathmore Visual Journal.

Leftover Christmas Balls

 I called this one "Leftover Christmas Balls".  I didn't want to include the piece that holds the hook .   Cardstock with colored pencils.

Christmas Cactus Waiting for Blooms

This is the second one I finished today.  The first one was done on the paper upside down.  And no way could I use it the way it would open.  So trash that one.  This one started out different too.  It was supposed to be the left side as the bottom.  But the fold was on that side.  So now the stems start on the top instead of on the left.  At least I was able to save this one.   Watercolor paper with watercolors, colored pencils, and pens.

Christmas Ccard Exchange

I joined a Christmas Card Exchange on Wetcanvas.  There are 13 participants so I will have 12 cards to do and mail.  Not everyone will make all original cards, but I will.  Some will make one or two original and have copies printed for mailing.  Since I have the time and it keeps me doing something, I like to make mine each original.

I have 3 finished and one more started.  All are on watercolor paper, with watercolors, colored pencils, and pens.
