Gesture, Illustration Friday

Just a simple gesture of aloha in the form of a quick watercolor for this week's IF challenge.
The scent of sweet plumeria blossoms sent my thoughts traveling back in time, to early mornings sitting around Auntie's table, where she would teach us kids how to string leis with the freshly picked flowers.
Just daydreaming...


  1. I always wanted to know how to make a leis when I was a child, that and a crown of flowers :)

  2. Me too! WIsh I knew how to make a lei. Lucky you, Michele.

  3. I look at this watercolor illustration and I say, It would be awesome to get one of them flower things around my neck! Girl, this little sister needs a break! A long vacation is in order. Thanks so much for you sweet words. They mean the world to me.

  4. What a lovely scene your words and picture paint. How excellent to have enough plumeria blossoms to make a lei.

  5. Beautiful!
    Thank you for the comment :) Hope you have a nice week!

  6. That's a lovely gesture there Michele. Enjoy your daydream my friend,
    Jane x

  7. Hey Michele, I can smell them from here, what a wonderful idea you have for gesture! If you ever get to Tahiti make sure you go to the flower markets! You will swoon! I now I did :) (well a little bit)

    see you :)
