My Botanical Impressionism series is continuing; and, now I feel like going to a Baby Blue mood. It started with painting on handmade paper when I created a few little handmade watercolor cards.
I placed one card against a blue canvas and instantly fell in love with the idea:
a handmade paper edges with the baby-blue canvas bring somewhat vintage feeling into the artwork. Yet the flowers, that are painted spontaneously, give a good impressionistic feeling.
Here are a few more recent designs:
A true burst of flowers is now in the Decor Gallery : tulips, daisies, daffodils, and many others! Yet it still growing just like a good gardener is using water to grow his plants, I use the watercolor and imagination to "grow" my watercolor flower bouquets.

It is becoming a good tradition now to give myself a Gift of Art every year.
This year in the month of my Birthday, I created Happy Birthday designs with the flowers from my virtual garden, most of them are the images of the paintings that were already sold. And now, they get a new, also very Happy, appearance in my Happy Birthday designs.
For example these lovely Sunflowers:
I thought that blue and green background with yellow highlights will give them a good contrast:
The gentle purple of the orchid called for lilac and purple shades:
Rich royal blue helped the Poppies and Purple Iris to be "framed" in a simple, yet romantic design:
As well as those Impressionistic Water Lilies, which are "floating" in the blue, water-like, surrounding:
Juicy pink made my Hibiscus and the Rose with the Dew Drops even more gentle:
And a sweet miniature Tulips on the window were just a right size for this vintage feeling Birthday card:
Overall, I shell say, I went overboard with my Happy Birthday designs this year as I created dozens of floral Birthday cards.
But what a great gift to myself!!
Besides, I surely had lots of fun!

Only one month is left before Valentine's Day; and, I am working on Valentine's designs. This season I've started with a few images from my collection.
All of them, in my opinion, are well suited for this heart-full holiday.
The Tulips On Fire above were so good for warming up any heart; and the reach background might be loved by a person, who (like me) appreciates green.
Next design is definitely for purple color lovers.
The Stripy Purple Orchid was a good match:
A written Love Note looks great on this still life with the Pen and A Red Heart:
An antique doll is inviting her Valentine for a Tea Party:
A Sweet Valentine note to her mom from a cute baby in a Heart shaped dream:
And a few giggles from a Red Hat holding a colorful heart-balloons bouquet:
And now, I am off to paint new artworks for new Valentine cards' designs.
Love Is All Around!!!

One of my printing companies screwed my printing order sending me 100 Note Cards with the images that I have not ordered. The back side was blank with the cute red and black outline. I've decided to utilize the back side by painting flowers and making greeting cards ... Doesn't take too long for an Artist to use the Creativity ;).. SOLD
Someones mistake will be turned into a pleasure of painting and potentially into a profit. I'll eventually place them into my Etsy Shop.
As they say: Everything is happening for a reason!
