MaryL and Laurie are artists of US and Canada respectively. Their works are amazing. I'm a follower of their inspiring blogs. MaryL lives on a sailboat. Her posts of living aboard are interesting. She designs wonderful wire art seahorses with nature elements. Makes polymer clay sculptures and pretty little books.
We read each other's blog and interacted for some time. Yesterday I received a surprise package. A pretty little book "Under the sea" from MaryL.
This little long book is of many colorful and lovely underwater creatures. The book is of educational and pretty drawings of living things under the water. See the bright fishes and funny turtle and colorful seahorses meet and greet..... Looking at this little book reminds my kids bedside story..... long long time ago !
Laurie's paintings are masterpieces. I love her water color sketches, particularly birds and animals. Just a few brushes speak themselves "wonderful" ! She has vision loss but her art keeps brighter. She's so kind to send me a print of her painting of birch with birds. Love the trunk textures and the little sweet bird. Thank you MaryL and Laurie. Your gifts are keepsakes for our friendship.
