This is a 4x6 little watercolor which is a tryout of little original watercolors that I am planning to post on my Etsy sight. I hand-deckled these edges by tearing the paper with a deckle ruler, wetting the edges then positioned just slightly off a board and sandpapered the edges. It gives a "feathered" look that you get with handmade paper. I am planning to either buy Twinrocker paper with the feathered edges or make my own. The Twinrocker paper is to die for...so I think I will order a few sheets, paint a few, and post them. I am a little down in the dumps artistically---it would be nice to sell something on my Etsy site or see that people are looking. The one sale right off the bat must have been a fluke. I know it takes some time to gain a following but my fruit of patience is not working very well. Anyway... just needed to have a little pity party...but tomorrow is another day. Create for creation's sake!!.................and journey on!

this is a fun little piece...what a great way to deckle the edges of the paper! and....i think that your fruit of patience is maturing quite well. your work is beautiful and i know that there are A LOT of people who would love to own a martha lever piece...they just haven't found you on etsy yet. but, do not worry, they will! keep hangin'.
