Notes from the Deckle Edge
When I picked up my brushes again, I began by painting one inch square watercolors, mostly portraits. My friends and I traded these little paintings on a schedule we had agreed on beforehand so that we each ended up with 24 pieces from each person in the circle in a years time. I did purchase a punch so that I didn't have to cut out the squares, which was the most tedious part. The only stipulations were as follows: 1) It could not be larger than 1 1/4 inches; 2) You had to do the work yourself, i.e. it could not include a stamp; and 3) It had to be mailed by a certain date. It was a great exercise, a lot of fun, and I received some beautiful tiny pieces of art. As one piece, it is quite amazing. Back to my brushes.
