Mother's Day _ May Challenge w/ Susan Weckesser

I created this page with Susan Weckesser's May Challenge in mind.  The colors for this challenge can be seen here :

Now to be honest with you when I initially saw these colors.. I immediately though of spring.. trees grassland, new flowers, birds's nest and  few eggs.. Then I thought of new life.. something you could only get from a mother.  It was in fact Mother's Day and I had a quiet moment to hangout with my art and watch my daughter sleep.
I took those colors with my gelatos and Koi watercolors, well most of them anyway.. and came up with this.

  The quote says.. Life doesn't come with a manual, it comes with a mother.

Anywho.. had fun creating this profile of a mother, although she does not look like me.. lol  She still has kind eyes and a gentle face a smile any child would adore!  Happy Mother's Day to all you out there with 2 legged or four legged children that you see about..
