A recent work that I did with a sunflower theme.
At first, I tried to stick with watercolor, then started pulling
out the other drawing materials. It’s found a new home now!

DSC_0045The other day, my watercolor class and I did some painting at the local shrine. Even though it’s only about 5 minutes away from my house, it was the first time I’d ever been there. We all had a great day of painting. Here’s my work from the day.
