Back to Watercolors: Buddha Maya

W14 8 16 BUDDHA MAYA 2 copyFor several weeks I was immersed in work and drawing classes.
My goal was to wean me from my addiction to my pencil, so that when
I wanted to bravely use pen and ink, I would have that as an option.
Schools out.   I’m weaned.  And laughingly, the last instructor taught
the exact technique I normally use — so the joke is on me!

It is so good to be back into wet paint, brilliant colors,
and thick absorbent paper!  Gads I missed color!

Buddha Maya is named after Maya Angelou.
She is turquoise and serpentine and tigers eye,
fitting gemstones for that woman.

She will soon be for sale on RedBubble!
