Animal Menagerie in Watercolor

animal menagerie in watercolor

My daughter painted this sweet animal menagerie as a baby shower gift for her childhood friend, Samantha. I still remember Sam as a pink-cheeked, chubby little girl with snow-white blonde hair and the sweetest personality ever. Today she’s grown into a beautiful young woman who’s expecting her first child in a few short weeks. My, how time flies. I still feel like a new mom myself.  I can’t believe how fast the years have flown by. I hope Sam enjoys her child and motherhood as much as I have. Children are such a blessing.

      I agree, Elena. I’ll take a hand-made gift over a store-bought item any day.

    What an adorable cast of characters. That little panda and the turtle – eeeek so cute! I don’t have kids but I can confirm that time is passing far too quickly!

      Thanks, Cindy. I like the placement of the animals and how they form a rectangle.
