Dad's New Watercolor

We just had to share dad's new watercolor painting! Mom didn't measure it but it's about 3 feet square! It's HUGE!! It was painted by Victoria, a friend of ours who is 16 years old! Is she good or what?! The painting is dad on one of his Indian motorcycles!



So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

We know a little bit about art, and especially watercolor, around here. After all, Delia is a gallery dog, and all of us get turns out there. That is one talented 16 year old with a VERY bright artistic future!!!
