Creative Weekend

Good Morning Friends!  Hope your weekend was safe and happy.  Mine was filled with creative outlets which mostly included watercolor painting.  I mentioned last Friday that I had a large art project I was thinking about and when I sat down to draw the sketch of what I wanted to do, my mind and body veered towards the paint brushes and paints.  While I did not work on my “large” art project, I did play with some small ones which was equally satisfying.

I just started this one late last night and have a ways to go before it’s finished.  This is my Carnival Inspiration.  There was no thought out plan, I just picked up the brushes and this is where I landed.

This one, called Bouquet of Roses, was sooo much fun to make that I wanted to make another one!

I learned some new fun techniques along the way that I would like to explore.  But the best part of the weekend was watching my daughter get exposed to watercolors for the first time.  She came to visit me as I “colored”.  I asked her if she wanted to paint and she nodded.  I loved watching her mix colors, work her brush,  and splash water around.  I’ve never seen her so enthralled with anything before.  No rules, just pure creative fun!
