Happy Spring!


This is traditional watercolor and ink on 100 pound cold press watercolor paper.
It was going to be used for Highlights magazine game, but never made it.
I still like how it came out and I have other magazines looking at it.

We are still working on the problem with the side bar. For those of you
who need the prompt for this week. Please create a spring scene with children
either playing , having a tea party, or planting seeds or doing some
spring like activities.
Have fun everyone!

Fun and zingy - makes my eye really roam around it. I like the look of wonder on the face of the little girl in the yellow dress. I reckon kids would love this one.

With a child's exuberance and joy. Very playful and butterflies galore. Wonderful fun. Spring has sprung.

I love this, and I love the kid holding the jar and the one with the butterfly on his face.
