Watercolor Chrysanthemums


Chrysanthemum...........not an easy word to spell, but surprisingly not too hard to paint.

It all started with a little card I made.

I didn't have a chrysanthemum in mind when I started this, but realized it looked like one afterwards.  Since then I've had that scene from Anne of Green Gables running through my mind.  Ya know the one where Anne beats Gilbert in the spelling bee by spelling chrysanthemum correctly-haha!  I love that movie!
