IF ... Surrender

Oh, so sweet and tender
is how I will remember
the day in late September
when you gave your heart to me.

  1. You just keep improving with each one!.. I really like the attention to detail in the ears, and the stones and grounds below. As far as story telling, the minimalist features still say volumes, as does the color softness.
    ...and that's a fairly thick string that balloon is attached with... obviously, the mouse has been worried about losing her heart...

Of course I'm especially partial to these watercolors of yours. This one is so very darling and beautiful. The girls loved looking at your blog too. Have you published any kids books? You so should!

  13. It seems like you a really finding your style. I would like to see all of these together in a book. I especially like how you suggest the background elements with the play of the paint.
