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!
