Watercolor Portrait of Little Girl

Watercolor portrait of a little girl finished Sunday it is an 8 X 10" artwork. I started this portrait the night my new great grand daughter was born.

Being a great grandmother brings me to thoughts on getting old, from Max Lucado in "Traveling Light".

"Aging is God's idea.....It's one of the ways he keeps us headed homeward.
We can't change the process, but
we can change our attitude....
What if we looked at an aging body as
we look at the growth of a tulip?
Do you ever see...gardeners weep as the bulb begins to weaken?
Of course not....
Tulip lovers rejoice the minute the bulb weakens.
"Watch that one," they say,
"it's about to blossom."
Could it be that heaven does the same?
The angels point ot our bodies. The more frail we become,
the more excited they become.
"Watch that lady in the hospital." they say.
"She's about to blossom."

Having celebrated my birthday just yesterday, your poetry by Lucado touched me in a lovely way. Thank you. Your watercolor of the little gal is so very well-done. You know I look to your watercolors as inspiration for my own. I hope one day to paint as smoothly and with such a light hand as you have.
