Though this may be my first post of 2018, after spending all of this year as a mom of three little ones, I have been surprisingly productive in making art. Starting with this post I'll be taking some time to share this year of my life in art. My first major creation of 2018 was a birthday gift for my mother. It is a window box filled with 66 pansies, her favorite flower, all made out of paper and wire. I made each flower to be unique, and hand colored each face. I wanted her to have blooms to enjoy year round and am very happy with the results.
