    Description


    What greater beauty than that found in love and light? This piece was completed to commemorate the anniversary of my partner and I. Four children and many amazing adventures and years together and I still feel swept off my feet when he kisses me. This picture was completed with no photo reference, just all from the memories in my heart. 

    I have been experimenting this year with vibrant reds and blues in my work as well as adding playful, whimsical light fragments. I feel this adds dimension  and a little magic to my work.

    This really speaks to me. Well done!

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.
