"...the Land of Possibilities"
Original watercolor art by Colleen Dequaine
Watercolors on Arches 140# cold press.

I dreamed of going to a secret and magical land, where anything
was possible....where colorful snails skimmed along the surface of
sparkling waters, and where the skirts of the mountain fairies formed
the waterfalls cascading down the faraway mountains.  
It is a secret place, a safe place, and magical, where only the 'inner
child' is allowed to enter!

our tree, they were so beautiful in bloom.  I thought the blossoms would be
wonderful in watercolor on a multi-purpose card.

approximately 5.5 x 7".
I hope you enjoy this art, and thank you for looking!
