A year of wonderful market flowers

The flower lady at the Brickworks farmer's
market creates wonderful bouquets from
flowers she grows in her own  sizeable
garden.  Thinking back on 2011 I wanted
to include a quick sketch of one of them.
I did this with watercolours and watercolour
crayons on drawing paper.  The paper
wasn't really designed for water, but I
am still happy with the painting's exuberance.
That's how I feel any Saturday that I carry
home one of Pegann's bouquets.

Have an enjoying-the-flowers-in-your-life day.
