"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive." -Eleonora Duse

This small watercolor painting is coming along. A few more glazes on the lace and then "fine tuning" where needed.
I am lucky enough to have 3 beautiful holly trees on our property. I have cut some sprigs and brought them indoors and placed in a vase. It's incredible how cheerful & festive they make a room feel. This is the first time I have "attempted" to paint holly leaves, practise makes perfect!
Enjoy your day,
