After giving my daughter roughly 30 watercolor panels that I had created in 2019, I set a new goal to send her one new watercolor a month in 2020. I needed a theme and decided to try my hand at doing the flower of the Month. The list that I found said that the Violet was the birth flower for February. Different lists claimed the Iris or the Tulip for February.
I struggled with the Violet as well as with a style that gave me joy. I tried just about everything. My husband challenged me to do an Iris. I had a hard time creating a loose Iris so I tried my hand at something more realistic. (Damn you Steve!)
My favorite one is that of the whimsical dancing flowers. I have NO idea what type of flower it is. It is purple. That counts for something. And I had fun splashing the color on the paper and then doodling.
