Well, Alan, she is a lucky lady to have you for a stepson.  How thoughtful of you to take the time to make her feel special.

Lovely, delicate daffodil.

When I do a flower on a dark background, I put a light coat of white where the flower will go, so that the flower colors will look more vibrant when painted.  You might want to try that the next time.


A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

Thanks Mea. Great idea. I'll give that a try next time.
