This was done a couple weeks ago and was one of my first experiments in using gouache on a toned drawing paper instead of white watercolor paper. The smoothness of the page is great for gouache. Since this was just after Mother’s Day (and I have a sweet family), a fanciful bouquet was the perfect painting inspiration.

A cool, dry breeze swept in last night. I am so ready for autumn.
