I have a fun story from the new owner of  'Wedding Bear and Roses'. Jorge purchased this watercolor, at my last show in July 2016, for his mother as a gift. He delightedly told me that it is prominently displayed in his parents home where carefully chosen smaller family photos surround it. He went on to say that people come in, stop and stare in admiration at the new addition. Questions like, "Is it an original," and "Where did you get that!?" are common to hear. Thank you Jorge for your fun feedback.

I remember the lace was so difficult and tedious to do but the 'delicate effect' was worth it..
