Christmas card in process

I have been working on a Christmas card and so far this is what I have come up with. Lately I've been intrigued with illuminated letters, and trying to play around with decorating with my colored pencils. I'm pretty sure it needs some kind of frame around it to set it off, but I wanted to post it unfinished just to ponder what I think of it so far. I'm still trying not to be overly critical of what I create -- I know writers get writer's block. Do artists get artist block??? I'll answer my own question -- yes!


  1. Hi Kate,

    I just found your blog through Martha Lever's blog. I like your lettering and you finished it up nicely with the border around it in the above picture. I know what you mean about being overly critial of your work because I struggle with the same thing. Many times it even stops me from doing anything, and I need to just get over it and create anyway. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Linda Epstein

  2. Thanks for your encouraging comments, Linda. Good words -- get over it and create anyway! Maybe we can both help each other with that.


I love reading your comments!
