If you follow me on social media (or receive my newsletter), you may be familiar with the story behind this collection of original watercolor paintings that I created on tinted notepad pages.

The Art:
This Tawny Owl is accompanied by a quote from Mark Twain:
'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

The Story:
My mom was a collector. Shells, rocks, quotes & sayings… to name a few. In her ‘office’ she had little pieces of paper pinned and taped all over — each with a little quote or reminder of how to live, how to love, how to be. As I was going through some of my Mom’s things last month, I came across this really cool notepad with quotes at the bottom of each page. My first thought was that I wanted to draw on each page. A bird of course.

Turns out that my sister gifted our mom that notepad and in turn, gifted it to me. I coated the pages with a watercolor ground and painted , painted, painted. I LOVE the loosey-washy-sketchy feel. It's like having an original page from one of my art books.

These 8.5"x11" original paintings are ready to be framed and grace your wall.

All paintings will be wrapped with care and shipped in rigid packaging.
