flowers and facets

Good morning,

Thank you all for rooting me on with this new venture of the Poppytalk Handmade Market. I appreciate it so much! [If you are unfamiliar with the PHM, it is a wonderful online market where vendors get to have a 'table' to display their items, and then it links to their individual online shops.]

I have been very busy making new work and I'm really happy with it. That always gives me a good feeling. Today I will be continuing work on this new series above called "flowers and facets". It is a series of watercolor paintings that are on 5 in. x 5 in. paper. I have made six thus far and will have no more than twenty in the set. "Flowers and facets" is the first theme in this size and there will be different themes periodically.

I hope your week is going well, it's nearly Friday! Tomorrow is my husband's birthday so there will be cake making going on. I haven't chosen a recipe yet. What do you recommend? I asked him what kind of cake he wants and he said "there's no cake I would refuse". so there you go. I think I agree with him.
