Five Bookmarks in Progress – Watercolor and Love
I’m working on 5 more bookmarks. They are so relaxing and fun. This morning, I took my coffee into the studio and painted a little before I got ready for work. With Memorial Day coming up, the sign shop is insanely busy, so any opportunity do anything calming is a welcome break.

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend. Happy Mother’s Day, too! I’m not a mom, but I know it has to be the hardest job in the world…. and the most rewarding.
