This is the start of a watercolor  of a rose of sharon flower I picked from my yard. I know sometimes theses photos are hard to make out, especially when done in pencil and the photo is taken at dusk on the table on my deck. I’ll get better at all this, especially since I can’t imagine not keeping up this practice.  I may not have as much time to devote to this website depending on what paths in life I take, but the foundation is set for me to continue for as long as I want.
