Scrap paper doodle . My head is full of what's to come for us as a nation? I still believe in our power as a people - rooted in love and compassion for all. We must stand for liberty and justice for all. #watercolor #people #scrap #painting #women

59/100 #100memoriesofmom My mom had a lot of sayings that she slipped into daily conversation. I always thought they were funny when I was little. Both of my daughters got a kick out of them as well when she lived with us. This was a tried-and-true standby when she was explaining how upset someone was. She would say they were as mad as a wet hen! #watercolor #illustration #hen #chicken #memories

It's so exciting to see the choices they make and how they put it all together. I'll post more as the work gets further along.
