This little birdie expresses my sentiments exactly. Just as little time creating at my sewing machine puts me in my happy place–something I haven’t had time to do a lot of lately.
As with my last post, I’ve playing with the color on the computer. The above painting is the original. Below is the computer enhanced version. I do kind of like the brighter colors which I can’t seem to create as well with watercolor.
Even though I’m not in school, or teaching school or getting kids ready for school anymore, September always seems to be a time of new beginnings. You’re never too old to love a brand new box of crayons!

I’ve been having fun with my watercolors today. Lately it’s experimenting with spots and speckles. I see others creating fabulous backgrounds with oils, so I tried to create something interesting with watercolor. I first tried the technique with the background only, but then it spilled over into the bird and flower. I’m not sure about the final verdict, but I think I will keep experimenting. Any thoughts?
