Teaching a class at the Denver Botanic Gardens called "Impressions of the Garden". Have four students that are themselves blossoming. I see again and again that learning to draw/paint is as simple as learning to see (shapes, texture, beauty) and building artistic confidence. This is a card using metallic markers and watercolor pencils. An attempt to capture some of the shapes of the tree that overhangs the table we sit at in the gardens, by the lily pond. Not one of my best cards but I'm posting it because I have not been making artist cards lately. I've got excuses but what is most true is I've been reading novels and taking naps to escape my stressors. Now ready to return to the practice of art and reality (for the most part).

The theme for the Denver Make 'Em, Trade 'Em for September is "Trees".
