A full sheet close-up of a handmade broach from the 1960′s which belonged to my mom. The broach has “Exquisite” engraved on the back. This was painted for the Watercolor Workshop “Close-up” project. It won first place in the amateur division of the juried art competition at the Neshoba County Fair in August 2003. The strong blue color is Winsor & Newton Antwerp Blue.
This is my Mom’s broach, it’s about 2.5 inches across.
