Blending the colors just so
creating the perfect shade to suit the soul
adding a little of this
a little of that,
testing to ensure proper hue.
Like life if applied too heavily
easily thinned out a bit as the hand moves,
delicate curves to add shade and dimension
a little dilution to achieve the effect desired.
To be content in knowing we can go back
correct the mistake gently
easing the lines into a quiet blend
like a sentence spoken through silence,
the perfect specimen found through diligence,
patience and harmony in each stroke
I see this creation like life in its own way,
like mood that can be softened with the right touch,
as the water moves the mark across the cotton
I see what I feel
was a calm and quiet peace.
Day number two of my watercolor class and I found time disappearing as I lost myself in practicing the techniques taught, creating the perfect shade I wanted and leaving with my mind lost in a quiet place, pondering the sun upon me as I drove away and just enjoying the moment and happy for the lesson. Peace and blessings, K
