Watercolor Portrait for She Scrapbooks

Today I shared something very special with the ladies at She Scrapbooks! For one of my classes that I am teaching I needed to paint sample for my class? Thought about making it something I would give away so what I decided to do was paint a watercolor portrait of the beautiful She girls and surprise them. : )  So I created this painting and delivered it to them, and they were absolutely in love. We got emotional but its all happy tears. I am so grateful that they enjoyed it and will be displaying it in their store. Today was a wonderful day, I am so honored by their reaction that I too, am speechless.

Here is the entire process of the piece as well as the final product.

No body deserves it more then you do!
