This watercolor is of an actual cactus that was in my parents’ backyard, in Mexico. I added mountains, as there are mountains in the region. My loving husband totally surprised me by having it framed. However,  I consider it to be an unfinished piece as it fails to totally capture the details of the cactus as I would have liked. 🙂

This is my first quilt, thanks to my daughter. I enjoyed choosing the fabrics and doing the gold curving patterned stitching on her machine. It now holds memories of time with my daughter, learning the quilting process. I plan to do more quilts because of the fun that I had with this small piece.

This is a copy of the original carbon pencil drawing that I did based on a very small photograph of our grandmother as a young woman.  Years ago, I was inspired to draw her because she had a stroke and was bedridden.  I was hoping that she would understand and remember that we saw her as more than her present circumstances.
