  4. Beautiful. It has a transcendental feeling to it, and it reflects the unpredictability of watercolour in harmony with lovely design and drawing.

  5. Thanks for visiting Sherrie and Becky. I didn't even realize the color connection till you mentioned it. I guess it was a sub conscious choice to use a green watercolor wash.
