Here is another birthday card. This one for my 95 year old step mother.

Well, Alan, she is a lucky lady to have you for a stepson.  How thoughtful of you to take the time to make her feel special.

Lovely, delicate daffodil.

When I do a flower on a dark background, I put a light coat of white where the flower will go, so that the flower colors will look more vibrant when painted.  You might want to try that the next time.

Thanks Mea. Great idea. I'll give that a try next time.
