I approached today's painting very very casually. Walked by the empty page and made some swipes. No conscious thought. Later, a few more swipes. Later, a little more color on top of what was there. Then a yellow wash . . . Halfway through, it just looked like mess. But at the end, I quite liked it.
And again, I really like the closeups.
This will be my last post for two weeks. I'm heading out to California--Big Sur. I've got 5 days all by myself at the beach, and then the rest of the time at a wonderful Bible conference, at a facility right on the ocean.
I have for so long wanted to take my paints to the ocean but never did, out of a feeling of profound inadequacy. Now, thanks in large part to the timing of Rowena's wonderful 100 in 100 project, I can't wait to sit at ocean's edge with my watercolors. I'm a devout reader, but am taking NO books with me. Mostly just empty art journals and writing journals. I will continue to do the 100 in 100 project. No clue how I'll post them all when I get home. I'll let that unfold.
For now, many thanks to all who visit here and leave me evidence of their visit. Your support and appreciation are honey to my heart.
