I get to post first, a card from Pat!



Pat sent me this beautiful, large postcard of what seems to be matilla poppies, one of my favorites. As you all know I love, love poppies so this was so perfect for me.  I love her layers of color that help pop the flowers off the card. She says she is on her third day of walking again. Go get them Pat! I have wonderful photos of her painting at my house during the garden tour, she is truly a talent and a wonderful sweet spirit. Thank you Pat for my beautiful postcard! We definitely need to get together soon!

what a fantastic first card! and not easy to live up to.

Loose and expressive and beautifully observed.

Beautiful, confident use of pen and watercolour. And the eye of a devoted gardener captures the image.
You've got us off to a wonderful start, Pat.

It's wonderful to see the Postcard From My Walk again -- and what an inspiring start to what is sure to be another great series!

I was wondering how this card got to its destination so quickly- you live near each other! A gorgeous card Pat, carefully observed but freely painted!

Wow - This sings! Definitely a great start to another series and as Vivien says this isn't going to be easy to live up to!

Thanks everyone. It was an absolutely beautiful day for sketchercize. This was an 8x10 inch, really large, and I sent it as an envelope.
