My UWS Spring Show entry

It's finally spring! Well at least in the way of call for entries for the Utah Watercolor Society Spring show.
I felt people-ish so I did a painting from a photo I took about 18 years ago of my youngest daughter. Her name is Aubrey. You know like the 'Bread' song (that's a group in case you are too young to remember). And Aubrey was her name.... if you know the song I bet you can hear the tune in your head. Yup, we named her after that song. Funny thing is, in the baby book it is a boy's name. We didn't care though and actually neither does Aubrey. It means Elf Ruler, so Aubrey really loves her name. She is quite partial to elves- especially ones she can rule.

Gorgeous portrait!
It's one of those names that can be boy or girl... I know another girl Aubrey... but you'll find some old British men with that name, LOL.

This portrait is wonderful! I admire portraits in watercolor -- the most difficult medium in my opinion!
