I have just discovered
that I am in love
with Violet, Gold and Turquoise
combined together in every way.
It started when I randomly created this bird with some leftover paint when designing my pine tree Christmas thank you cards.
And my son, Nick, told me it would be more interesting if I had a set or a series of three paintings.
Well – that is all it took to get me splashing in puddles of violet, gold and turquoise last evening.
He and hubby like this butterfly best.
I love the color block abstract.
It was so fun splashing it on and turning it around and shaking it and watching the watercolor paint do it’s magic.
To me – it is pure artistic magic. The colors tell the story, and the story is unique to each individual viewing it.
After a couple of days of frustration trying to recreate some scenes I thought would be easier than they were, I just allowed myself to splash and see what happened.
And it felt good.
This is what is great about snowy, cold January evenings after the holidays.
Embrace them, and do what makes your heart sing!
I may not be a great artist, but I’m a girl with a paint brush and an easel and time at the end of the day to cherish,
and that is what I’m doing.
Cheers & Hugs,
