I was feeling blue. I was also so disappointed because Daniel Smith did not get my paints to me for our time off — three weeks of them screwing up and me calling (I now will buy locally or at Cheap Joes, never again from DS.) Finally I decided to get off my pitty-pot — the fact is, I am not master watercolor and have a bunch of student grade old watercolors which will do nicely in my journal. I really needed yellow today — yellow and orange cheer!
I painted from memory and photos of my husband and I in our last garden. Plastic frogs, real frogs, birds, crows, his sneakers drying on the well roof, yellow flowers, garden buddha, saying prayers and pujas outside, all fond memories. And I am cheered this evening, much better than when I started the day. Happy Sunday!
