Newest Project

I recently finished this little number--well, not little. It's 36" by 22".  It was always going to be a birthday gift for my dear friend, Nikkie, but it also turned out to be proof that I can work on a large scale when I want to, and that this watercolor thing is starting to work out.

I wanted the banner to read something nice, but not corny, and so I settled for slightly corny hidden under the cloak of a foreign language. Since Nikkie speaks German, I did a little research to translate a line by Percy Bysshe Shelley that goes, "When winter comes, can spring be far behind?" I'm not sure if this translation is 100% grammatically correct, but, hell, I tried.

Hopefully I can take a better-quality photo soon, but this will have to do for now.
