Red Fish, Blue Fish!
I’ve just gotten back from a little much needed R&R in Cozumel, Mexico!
Ahh! Sunny days, warm ocean breezes and pina colada’s on the beach, now that’s my idea of a vacation.
So what’s a girl to do on a tropical island – PAINT of course!
I love using time during my vacation to get my sketchbook out and record all of the beautiful surroundings on my travels.
There is always something new to see and it becomes a great way to remember where we have been and traveled to.
This trip was with a great group of scuba divers at Dolphin Dive from Athens, Ga. Check out their site to find out about all of the great trips they have planned and how you can learn to dive too! What a super fun group of people, we had a blast!
So what would be more fitting than some hand painted cards with charming fish inspired by all the bright colors of Mexico.
The small size of the ATC’s ( artist trading cards) are perfect for when you are traveling. I package up a bunch and put them in a plastic lunch bag to keep them clean.
So easy to paint when you are lounging on the beach! Then when I get home I put them together to make the cards.
I love being able to send these for birthdays, thank you or I’m just thinking of you! What happened to those hand written notes??!
You can find an assortment of handpainted cards on my Etsy shop!
