Karla.....can you use a stylus with the iPad for your watercolor app??? Would that help with the " detail"?? Xoxo Regina

I wish I had a tiny stylus, that might, Regina.

Curtains in My Tree

how wonderful that your in maui
I can't even imagine getting to go there


I quite like everything about your ipad watercoloring, even the writing looks good. I'm working on my blank journal prior to departure. I'm using wallpaper from Bradbury & Bradbury; I bought 3 sample packs that were $10 each. The papers are beautiful. I know you don't need wallpaper, but if you ever have the need, you would like this stuff. Charlotte

I looked up that wallpaper, it is gorgeous, Charlotte. Beautiful reproductions. How does it feel? Sometimes it is the texture of the old stuff more than the pattern that gets my eye. Always the old tones. And this Bradbury collection looks like it gets the tones right.

Have a great trip. Hawaii again for you?

Karla Nathan

Maui is a beautiful place to stay, I was very lucky to go there two years in a row. I have a feeling it will be a long time before we go back, though. There are very beautiful places to go that cost much less and are just as fun. One of the best parts of our trip was the traveling companions, so I hope we can talk to them about trying another venue sometime.


I am so inspired by you, Karla. To have the vision to make the fairy in the sand is amazing. Love your projects and am so glad you had such a great time there.


I always enjoy seeing all of your creations. But the fairy you made with sand and shells on the beach is so charming! You should make prints and canvases of that to sell!


Your paintings have such carefree joy -- they make me smile. And I do like your beach fairy!

Karla Nathan

Thanks, Lisa, I love making shell fairies and leaving them on the beach. I wonder if anyone Dover finds them? They probably dont stand out much and just get walked over, but it makes me happy to think that some little girl might come across it and be excited to see it.
