Orchids


My sweet husband surprised me with a GLORIOUS vase (hand-painted no less) of lemony-scented orchids for Mother's Day! WHAT A SKETCHING opportunity!!

WHAT A CHALLENGE!!

I liked my linework -- but oh -- I must devote MUCH more practice to keeping my watercolors light and light-filled!!

What an excuse to ask for more vases of flowers!! LOL

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOTHERS OF CHILDREN, PETS, GARDENS, HOBBIES, AND ALL THOSE WHO CARE AND CONCERN THEMSELVES WITH OTHERS!
