wAtErCoLoR 12x18

I want to do another watercolor. I haven't done one in so long. I sketched out this picture of Maddie from a photo of her on the beach. I am doing this on 12x18 sized watercolor paper. I'll upload progress pictures as I go along.

Jon captured this great picture of Madison the other day. It was taken in the grove of pine trees here on the farm. I love how the sun behind her makes her shine. Of course it was up around 50 degrees that day!!

More snow yesterday. Maddie was out twice. She just loves the snow.

I'vE bEeN tAgGeD!!

TAG your it
I've been tagged by Mollye at Mollyedoozey to reveal 7 "What If's..." about myself. Here are the questions and my answers.

1. What If I could meet anyone in the world to chat with:

I would love to meet Keith Herring to talk about art.

2. What If I could travel anywhere in the world:

I would take a trip to a beach somewhere surrounded by the bluest water you have ever seen with the love of my life, Jon.

3. What If I could have one wish granted to benefit all of mankind:

I would make sure that everyone went to bed with a warm meal and a full stomach.

4. What If I could live in a period other than the present for just 24 hours:

I would go to the year 2023, I just hate surprises!!

5. What If I had to become an animal for 24 hours:

I would be a cat.

6. What If I could make-over three areas of my body:

I’d flatten my tummy like it was when I was 18. I'd get botox injections in the deep frown lines on my forehead. And I'd have lasic surgery on my eyes so I'd never have to wear glasses again.

7. What If I could bring anyone back to life for 24 hours:

I'd bring back my grandmother for her to see my youngest daughter Maddie.

This is for the Monday Image Challenge at AlTeReDdEsIgNs group and the Created ByHand Challenge which was to use this house template. I used a marbled background layered with words paper and a swirled lacy paper over that. I stamped writing and a heart onto the back ground and added the words Dream and Cherish, a definition of the word Commitment, a flower and a button. The roof top is a handmade paper with embossed hearts onto which I dusted on sparkle chalk.
