After i had drawn the flower my teacher then told me if i cloud paint it on a poster. i didn't think i was going to be able to do it because i had to do it with water paint. My mom told me to just give it a try so i did. It took me like 3 weeks to finish but it looked good. I finished right before the competition and i didn't get to go but when went back to school my teacher then told me that i had won first place. the school gave me a free yearbook and my mom was so proud of me.
