For My Husband, azalea in watercolor

azalea in watercolor © Maria Reichert 2012
When spring came and all of our azaleas were blooming, my husband asked me to paint a picture for him.  These flowering bushes are his favorite sign of Spring.  Well.  I don't usually paint flowers.   But.  He asked so nicely.  This is what I came up.  Matted and framed and it made the perfect anniversary present.  Twenty years.  Amazing.
