my free time is dwindling

Child's Play Challenges asks us to find inspiration in watercolor paints this month. For a few years I've been meaning to paint the photo mat around my grandmother's photo because I thought the white didn't look good next to the sepia toned photo. Also she was a watercolor artist so I thought it would be a nice way to honor her memory. Since I only have a few days left until school starts I thought I better get painting.
The challenge inspired me to finally pull the photo down off the wall, dig out my watercolors, and pick a blue to get as close as I could to her uniquely colored eyes. They were so blue they seemed gray to me.
This project took probably a total of 30 minutes. Seems silly after procrastinating for 4 years.
I love you Gram!
