I woke up this morning and, as usual, accessed the Forum right after doing the breakfast dishes. WOW! For a moment I thought I was still dreaming... I pinched myself a couple of times and opened just one eye...very slowly, and there It was, my entry was indeed the winner of the April 2017 Painting Challenge.
What can I say? A mere "Thank You" does not convey my gratitude to the PB members who gave their time and effort to vote. Just let me state that your gracious posts have given me encouragement to continue on with my attempt to improve my work.
A word of recognition to Val; her commitment to the Monthly Challenge is commendable.

Emma Lee, Old Hare

Thank you for your kind comments, they confirm that my little painting did win...I am still in shock...

This little flower, humble and unassuming,  transcended the mundane just by being there...Her beauty deserved to be brought out, even if I had to use a magnifying glass.
