Early in January, I bought different packs of watercolor pads from Jackson’s Art. I wanted to try different brands of watercolor paper. One of which was a pack of 25 Fabriano Artistico postcards. I painted on these cards in January only when I felt like painting.
My first postcard was a winter scene from Niigata Prefecture in Japan where my friend Grace lives.
The next postcard was a sunset scene where I also created a tutorial on how to paint it.
I guess I was busy from February to May because the next postcard I painted was done in June. I also have painting tutorial on how to paint these tulips.
I was pretty hard working in June and painted all these.
In July, I challenged myself to not paint flowers and I was happy with this little accomplishment that I posted this photo on Facebook.
Two of my friends (who happened to be husband and wife) took notice and asked me if they can buy all the postcards. I knew I had 4 empty postcards left of the 25 so I offered that they might want to wait for the rest of the postcards to be painted so they could chose which postcards they would like to buy. Without hesitation, they offered that they will buy all the 25 postcards. My jaw dropped. They have not even seen the rest of the 15 postcards! I am grateful that they appreciate my art. As a little token for their appreciation, I asked what they wanted me to paint on those 4 postcards. My friend asked for postcards representing the four seasons. She picked what subjects to paint and it was up to me how I was going to paint them. I made these.
And I then I found out I still have an extra postcard so I decided to paint this.
And these are all the post cards in one photo. I hope my friends like them all.
Since I will be saying goodbye to all these postcards, I made a Youtube video!
Watercolor is one of my favorite mediums! I really love your plant paintings!
I would be so happy if I receive some postcards or cards from someone. You know these day we dont receive cards so often due to digital world. These cards would make anyone life happier! By the way, beautiful watercolor picture.
You are so talented! The postcards look amazing! I would buy them as well. Did you ever think to open your online shop and sell them?
I love the idea of curating and gifting Watercolor Postcards. I especially like the themes and scenes you painted on each one. I’m having a hard time picking a favorite, but the floral ones are so soft, feminine and beautiful.
Wow, you paint so well!! I would definitely go through all the tutorials, I love painting too, and these would definitely help me enhance my skills. I believe they would love the postcards too. 🙂
Your works are amazing. I love the floral card the most. Nice colors.It is such a beautiful idea. You are a fantastic artist.
Water colours the last time i used it was like 20 years ago. these cards reminds me of my childhood and its nice to see its still in use.
These are very special and elegant looking. I am painter myself, so I very much appreciate it.
I love watercolour:) They all look beautiful. I would like to get them too
Wow they are beautiful. You are truly talented. Very lucky of your friends to get them all.
This is such a great post. Those are such beautiful cards, so creative. Thanks for sharing!
Wow! What a lovely piece of art! These post cards looks extremely beautiful. I love the four seasons contrast the most. The first one with the winter scene also looks fascinating.

These watercolour postcards are so stunning. I would be so made up to receive one of these myself. It looks like so much love went into creating them.
These are pretty awesome. I rather send a nice postcard to family and friends than an email or a text.
