Since I first moved to Seattle, Young Flowers has been my favorite flower shop. But it used to be over on Seneca and 3rd and was hard to get to during business hours. Then last September they moved to Stewart between 5th and 6th, which is nearby and I was in heaven. Last Thanksgiving I stayed home for the entire break to work on art projects. One of those projects was a couple dozen watercolors I planned to take to Young Flowers when I worked up the courage. It took me until Mother’s day to work up the courage. But then they were warm and receptive to the idea of putting some in the shop to sell. (And they have been selling!) Recently they asked me if I could do some cards. Above are a few of the cards taken from the lager watercolors. They are mostly fall-themed at the moment.
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
