There are so many things blooming in our lives again.   We have a new appreciation of our relationships and the things that surrounded us.  Nature has shown its resilience. Trees are growing straight and tall baring new leaves. Even the wildflowers are starting to explode.  It is an exciting time to see life re-start in front of us.

We are anxious to see how each of our artists express the happiest part of re-opening in watercolor.
