We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic.
Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings,
different hopes, different dreams.
The wave of the future
is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed
but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.

watercolor in progress
One of my sisters admired the above watercolor at my December show...but asked if I could make a similar piece, only larger and still maintaining the orangish background but maybe with more of an earthtone tint...
This is my progress so far...it's 11 x 15 (the first is 9 x 11) the composition is slightly different, but all of my work is OOAK since I don't use templates or patterns--just free hand it...my moms terminology would have been: winging it on a song and a prayer!!
I'm thinking of my mom so much during this holiday season...missing her, but more at peace with her absence than last year...time...right?
Thinking I might do a piece for mom...maybe a portrait...hmmmm...gotta think about it...
