Red Berries



Watercolour  10 x 16 cms

























I've been so busy this last month I've hardly had time to think about Christmas and get some cards organised,
But I made the effort and burnt some midnight oil to paint these red berries .  I want to get them printed  and sent off as soon as possible so online printing is not going to be an option (unless I want to pay large amounts of money for a fast/courier service)
Tomorow I will visit a local printer and see if he can do an overnight miracle!

Note to myself...please be organised next year and start your christmas cards in June.
