Watercolor Flower Painting

Hello 2014 and hello to you!  I hope that you have enjoyed the holidays.  I enjoyed the break with my family and friends and now I'm ready to get back into the swing of things.  I wanted to share a painting with you today and a bit of myself.  Prior to flowers and children, I earned a degree in art history and worked in public relations and marketing for the arts.  The year I married my husband, I suggested to my newly retired father-in-law to take a class at the art center that I was working at.  My father-in-law always had an artist within him, he just never pursued it.  He began taking watercolor classes and 12 years later he is showing and selling his work regularly and now teaching painting classes himself.

Over the holidays I received a gift from him of a painting of one of floral designs.  I love his interpretation of my work and I wanted to share this special gift with you.  Happy New Year to you all!  I hope you take time to reflect and learn from the past and pursue what is in front of you in the future.
