I met Jolee in December of 2010 to honor her first pregnancy with this henna peacock. For her 2nd pregnancy, I asked her if she had any ideas for her design. I've painted a fox, a monkey, whales and all sorts of animals and I had a feeling she'd want another creature. I had to smile when she wrote back asking for a rising phoenix, risign out of water instead of fire. I love it when I get asked to paint things I never would have thought to do myself.
Here we are with the blooming cat tails in the Cottonwood Marsh in Boulder, Colorado. I've loved exploring these trails and capturing gorgeous mamas surrounded by Colorado's natural beauty.
