New beginnings


Watercolor, 14″ x 20″

It’s not often that I’m happy with a watercolor, but I’m happy with this one : ) After a few weeks of daily dedication, from dawn ’til dusk no less, and ne’er a picture to show for it, and that fortnight on the back of years of abject failure in this medium, that’s saying something.

And although the house is full of resplendent lilies and regal orchids, I’m drawn to these ‘weeds’ that only last a few hours in the morning…they’re probably simpler than the more showy flowers, and they’re in the garden, so I get to sit with the bees as they visit these flowers, and paint in between showers, as it’s pure rain we’re getting this weekend. Heaven on earth.
