About

Watercolors & Whimsy - Lots of Note Cards, Prints and (a tad famous) Desk Calendar, too.

Ta-Da and WELCOME! Finally, after selling originals, note cards and calendars and meeting up at juried art festivals and shops, here we are at Etsy!

DESK CALENDARS Every Year in 2 beautiful editions always with new artwork. Pick your favorite and order refills year after year. It's such a unique, popular gift! And going on 20 years in the making. I wonder how many kitchen counters, desks and tabletops the calendar has rested on all these years... coast to coast and across the seas.

Oh...!! you can also order "Welcome Christmas" - joyful Advent designs in a keepsake tabletop calendar. My amazing Connecticut cousin Dee (MadeintheShead Etsy store) worked hard with me on this REALLY unique project. Thank you, Dee! Just Cuz you are so talented and I am so blessed.

I love watercolor...but also work in acrylic and oils, plus mixed media, wood block print making and more. But always back to the whimsy and movement of watercolors which I started at a local art association class almost 30 years. So I've done tons of original paintings and note card designs, calendars, corporate projects, wedding flower paintings, garden shows and tours as well as garden"portraits" by commission. I especially LOVE to teach...so keep me in mind! (My gypsy wagon is ready to hit the road to almost anywhere!) I most love to paint along the beloved shores and harbors of New England and in beautiful settings in Colorado's Rocky Mountains.

My work is also on Amazon Books - on the cover of a line of writing journals. I think you'll love them--complete with some of my favorite quotes for writing prompts...and sketches. Is there a theme or collection of quotes that you'd like me to include? See what offerings are published so far by searching for Trish Murtha journals on Amazon.

Before painting, I also did computer based graphic design. As the technology changed and became more creative, I followed along. Now I do book jacket designs for novels, too.
packing and sending off my products. My fabulous creative kids - Brad, Scott & Anna - inspire me every day. Now 5 grandkids love to draw and create and I learn so much from them. My parents, sisters and Len have supported me, and schlepped and packed so much stuff. Friend Barbara is an amazing studio assistant. I thank them all dearly.

As they say, life is good.
