    These cards are outstanding! Your watercoloring is so fascinating, Jill. I cannot take my eyes off your brush as you pile on the color and water. You just get better and better at your art. How I yearn to improve my own painting; your videos inspire me so much!

    Wow I opened up the post here today and soon as I saw the cards I said out loud,” Wow she is amazing!!” That is right Jill because these cards are drop dead gorgeous. I can’t even begin to express how stunning they are and once seeing the video, it appears that it is much easier than I had thought. Your talent is stellar and you bless so many with your creations and inspire those in a creative slump to start once again. Miss ya, and love ya still!! Big Hugs.
