Surrounded by visions
yesterday places grace our thoughts
remembering moments spent
a translation of sorts
from one scene to the next,
where the water moves
our souls reside.
Taking time to be
in a moment where sun lies beyond
glass panes of thought
what day was it when we watched
storm clouds slink in
reflected off of the evening tide,
the salt air gathering us
on Carolina shores
so many years ago
but seems like only yesterday.
Knowing there is no perfection
in life or memories
we strive to become one with our craft,
to dabble when time is gifted
and to feel so very blessed
at lessons learned.
Finally gathered the spirit and time today to somewhat recreate a picture that hangs in our home, Surfside beach South Carolina and a view from the balcony to the sea oats and dunes below. Feels so good to create with color again, having finished a gift (a picture for another post) and just being one with the brush. Having a zen moment😑
Wet on wet
color thrown about like random thoughts
little here and little there
a bit of this and that.
Salt falls on puddles random like rain
and we never know in the end
what will remain of our pieces of self
washing back and forth
steady movement forming rainbows of peace
and I gaze to the jasmine beyond
knowing it’s one step closer to understanding
and life will keep moving
like wet paint on soft cotton,
smooth and flowing
or beautiful in the accidental splash
of a word cast on the world,
it all falls down as we let ourselves go
to flow into the rhythm
of another hour passed by
unaware of it all
except the here and now.
More time today practicing with my watercolors, I’m thinking I may turn into the tie dye queen of art yet 🙂 but loving it and always learning with each stroke, surprised at times by what comes from a blank slate.
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.
