IF-Wild and Challenge Day 15

Today is a combo painting of my April Painting Challenge
and Illustration Friday word-Wild. I painted this in
watercolor rather than my usual gouache.
As I painted this the news of the explosion at the Boston
Marathon came on and I am so sad about it and wish anyone
who is there the best wishes.

I too feel heavy hearted for Boston.
On a more positive note, your painting is so fun.

I love all of your art ...but would really like to own this one called "wild" and playful spirit. I want to frame it and put it by my desk (it makes me think positive thoughts and puts me in a happy place of childhood; something that even my own kids 8,15 and 19 can't always bring me since they aren't always as "pure happy" as this painting. Love it -- great job! I can see the print in kid's pillow and sheet sets or as art in a kid's room (but I want it for my office since big kid at in progress is what works for me; kids say sometimes "oh mom you are such a baby/kid/ .....ok with me. Keep up the painting and showing them on your blog and Facebook. Renee
