This is also 16" X 20 " watercolor. I used a lot of dropped in color in the background while the background was wet. I only wet the areas that I am working in. This reminds me of my daughter, Melissa. She taught me how to make flower pens. I love the ones she made for me a few years back and use them everyday. I was at a garage sale and bought a group of silk roses and made some yesterday just for fun. Thank-you Melissa. "It is not the realization of our dreams that makes us feel lost.

I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
