Holly Leaves and Berries

Version 2

Winter Fairy

This painting was done with Sennelier watercolors and a few pen lines with Micron .005 waterproof pen.  Did this as was not winter anymore but still felt like it at the time of painting.   Sure enjoyed doing this one.


Mother’s Day Flowers

I wrote and painted this for my Mother on Mother’s Day.

“My mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart.

She planted all the good things, that gave my life it’s start.

She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream,

Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.

And when the winds and rains came she protected me enough,

But not too much because she knew I needed to grow strong and tough!

Her constant good example always taught me right from wrong,

Markers from my pathway that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother’s garden.

I am her legacy and hope she feels the love reflected back from me!
