Sailing on HMS Serendipity

Amsterdam canal scene
Had a message from a friend recently. She wanted to know if I had a 4" x 6" piece tucked away in my collection, preferably with a maritime theme, preferably featuring the colour teal.

Um... no.

4" x 6" fabric postcard

But then I remembered a photo I took during a trip to Amsterdam, and how I had always thought the image was worth working up into a finished piece.

So, a few hours later, the fibre postcard was finished and on its way by mail to a very appreciative collector. I used arashi-dyed cotton for the water.

As an example of synchronicity, this flyer appeared in my in-box the next day. It features a watercolour painting by Mary S. Martin on its cover.

your rowboats are lovely. Nothing like a little suggestion to get you on another path?

I enjoyed both yours and Michele's displays at the Hudson Art Show today.

Thanks so much, Dianne, for taking the time to come by the show with Robbie.

What a lovely small piece. All three photos look so good together, maybe you could start a series!
