It all began with a Mother’s Day present for my mom. Yes, I admit it, I’m cheap. Or more correctly, I’m poor. But it’s also true that there is a limit to how many bath products, flowers, and gift cards you can get a mother before it’s just routine. So instead I decided to play around with some supplies sent to me by my friend Brooke and ended up coming up with this:
I’ve spent the past week working on sketches and playing with watercolor to begin a project for another friend’s mother who saw this piece and ordered two pieces of dot art.
One will be white dot art flowers on a turquoise background, and the other will be mirrored but turquoise dot art on a white background. This is just the first layer of watercolor so far.
The piece at the top of this post is not watercolor, however. It is something I started at first as a way to test out some new ink & paint pens in preparation for the pieces for my friend’s mom. As I went along, I realized that I might as well finish it and make something of it! The piece is available for purchase now at the Elephant and Dove Etsy shop.
