Cracks and fissures run through
sad circular box holding uninspired shades,
quenched and seeking life
little drops to feed the drive
to survive and become whole.
We use our tools at hand
spinning and moving, bringing forth life
pushing out in sweeping strokes
masterpiece of thought birthed
on wet sheets waiting.

Thoughts on the watercolor box I’m about to crack open and use. Practice, practice and then more πŸ™‚ I’m always amazed how the colors dry up and look as if they’re dead, parched. Just add water and voila, play time ❀ and no, this image is not mine….I wish I were that good ❀

  1. thanks Elouise, had to, have meeting in an hour and a half about the new job and I think I’ve got it, tying up formalities I suppose but so excited. Full time assistant manager for a boutique for ladies that specializes in cotton and bright color resort wear ❀ Yay, too excited πŸ™‚

  2. I don’t have much gift either but will continue to practice to perfect it a bit more….okay, a lot more πŸ™‚ have an amazing day Betty ❀


  3. Your description of the dried paints is wonderfully vivid and brought back memories. (I used to dabble but have no gift it.) It’s also a good metaphor for our lives and for all our endeavors. I enjoyed this, Kim. πŸ’•

  5. just finished two pieces, one a quick landscape which I’ll probably do a post on tomorrow (fire on the mountain) and the other, a butterfly with flowers (still needs more work) I have more fun with landscapes πŸ™‚ thanks Tre, getting there stroke by stroke πŸ™‚


  6. Practicing makes all the perfection one can muster up. I think you’re getting there as you improve with each piece. Happy watercoloring!
