Painting life

Colors caught in a favorite pose,

moonlit skies on clouds it rests

caught like a marble suspended

I learn to flow through the brush.

Where I’ve been on quiet days

pondering the landscape of sun and haze

mixing and matching the color to mood

purple sky hue.

This is my first official watercolor painting, still in progress (mostly working the water) and I was actually quite pleased with the results, which for me is saying a lot. Just in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, one more class next week and practice, practice and more practice needed. Moon over water….by me.

  5. You’re funny! You are as good as me! I think we are all good/whatever depending upon what we write, how we feel, what someone else gets from our work. Many, many (MANY) people get a great deal from your work – I hope you know this! Ask Tre if you do not, she used to always talk about your work and I found you through her, and never regretted it for a moment.
