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

I hope you enjoy this art, and thank you for looking!

This is based on a photograph I took of a wild pheasant that
came to our bird feeders one day last summer looking for some food!
The pheasant took me completely off guard that morning, but I did
happen to have my camera with me.  So lovely...

"Sunshine's Promise"

While storms on the ocean are frightening, they are also exciting and
beautiful!  On spring break at Cocoa Beach, Florida, there was a dramatic
storm with much lightning.  As things broke up and the sun started to come
out, I saw the most beautiful rays from the sun peeking through the clouds,
 and knew it would be a fun and challenging watercolor project.
