I just got back from a beach vacation, so "Del Mar Beach, California - watercolor, ink, mini-shot" REALLY speaks to me! (But I love all four cards!)

I left four cards semi-complete before going on vacation. Time to go and FINISH them!!!

I usually do not wait so long... but I left them half-finished on my table and took a week's vacation!

Hmmm.... it seems that when I put the cards in the gallery as a SET, things don't work out so well ....

Others are in my gallery.

I think I'll have to make my cards with lots of snow because it's so hot here. We're looking at 110 again today. And actually, I have seen snow along the side of the road as late as July in years past when we drove along Highway 49 and 88 and 89. Summer's not officially here yet, but it's already too hot.

A payment last month took 28 days from my drop to their P.O. box (both located in Sacramento). I mailed cards to Germany and they arrived in 7 days. Arghhhh.
