Purple Crocus

Hello friends.

Our crocus have gone by, and so has Easter, but I know
some of you are still waiting for your spring flowers.

You did an amazing job on your crocus, Bonnie! Love the soft shading and the perfect way you grounded them. Your die for framing them is gorgeous! I must practice this technique after seeing your fantastic water coloring!
