Hooray for Hot Colors - IAS #8

Good morning my friends. I hope that those of you who are mother's with your own children or those who mother other's children in one way or another have a very Happy Mother's Day. I received a phone call from my daughter who lives in California last night and had a pleasant conversation with her. I have dinner plans tonight with my other daughter who lives here in Texas close to me. My grand children are going to fix dinner for us. Can't wait!

Today also is Challenge No. 8 for International Art & Soul. Our theme this time is Hot Colors. It hasn't gotten all that hot here in H Town yet, but I know that it will in time. Our summers can be brutal at times.
I just love this image. She looks so happy and vibrant. I thought she would be perfect for Hot Colors.
