So I didn’t get a story done for yesterday. Maybe New Year’s?
But I do have another painting to share! My mother absolutely adores Chinese landscapes with the round mountains and waters and stuff. So I decided for her present I would (try to) make her one.

She loved it, of course. And it was so frustrating to keep it secret since as soon as I finished I wanted to yell HEY COME LOOK WHAT I DID! oh no wait, it’s for you, you can’t see it…
