Yankeegirl creates beautiful works

My friend and watercolor artist, yankeegirl, contacted me the other day to find out if I would mind if she created and listed one of her beautiful watercolor paintings based on a picture of a zinnia I had posted to my flickr account last year. I was so delighted!! I roam around the neighborhood~when the weather is much better~ taking pictures of things I see, mostly flowers in bloom and the creatures that feast on them.
The resulting painting is just gorgeous! I recognized this flower right away. Available for sale in her Etsy shop, Anna's Flower measures 11 x 14 inches, mat included.

red She did a fantastic rendition! Here is the original photo I took last summer. Please stop by her Etsy shop and take a peek at her beautiful paintings and lovely photography.

Thank you, Yankeegirl! I'm sure your zinnia will bring joy and happiness to the place that it will call home.
