Mother's Day #5....a watercolor.




Here, in a smaller image, is the painting I chose for inspiration for the challenge on SCS today. I just loved the colors (oh, surprise), and was daring enough to try a little watercoloring of my own. Never done this before! I think I like the result well enough to send this as a Mother's Day card to my Mom. This, I think, is #5 of the ones I will send to her as part of her Mother's Day week of mail. Even if she doesn't like the image, she will love the RED, white, and black.
