Sweet for IF, CED check-in

I was inspired by some artwork I saw last week at Illustration Friday.  It reminded me that art shouldn't be stiff and serious but playful.  I wanted to remember what it felt like to play so my daughter and I took watercolors to the pool and created splashes of color while standing in the water.  It's actually something I've been wanting to do for awhile and she thought it was great!  I let the background sit for a couple days until I saw the image I wanted to pull out.  It feels a bit like dreaming to me and I really enjoyed creating it!
