Happier Endings

This watercolour fruit design I abandoned midway, thinking I had spoiled it. Today I pulled it out again and re-worked it and I'm happy with the result.

This red tree I also re-worked, deepening the red and green, and by making the flowers more decorative, then finally pasted it in my journal over red crepe paper.

I love happy endings!


  1. Yes! I like both of them. I am working on a fabric fruit and veggie bowl as we speak! Well, I was, I came here to take a short break from sewing...going back to it now. Enjoy Sunday.

  2. the top picture is really quite amazing, complex. wonderful. harder to do than it might look

  3. Beautiful! I like the use of black you've started using lately. I was going to say especially with the fruit - but you know the black and red one with the tree is gorgeous too. Reminds me of my antique Chinese furniture sitting in storage!

    Love Love Love the watercolour Patti especially the bananas. The Tree is stunning on the red crepe paper b/g too :)

  5. I like both a lot especially noticing how you use the patterns to fill in solid areas. You didn't spoil it AT ALL! Much love, O


please share a thought......
