imitation's the best praise
Just so you don't think I've been sitting around doing nothing here's the next in the series of little paintings I've been playing around with recently. I go through periods of packing up the watercolors, paper and brushes (which are separate to the silk painting ones) and thinking I may never do another. Well, none of us really knows if we'll wake up in the morning either but we still make plans and act as though our days are endless. So I've returned to painting in watercolor and just like every other time it's a matter of learning all over again. They're small so I don't have to go off to work in the midst of one and forget what I was planning to do when I have the time and light to continue.
Happily, it's a long weekend so I'll start another tomorrow and maybe one of these days there'll be one I find very pleasing. The best presents are the ones we give ourselves so don't forget to treat yourself kindly.
