For the big six-O I am calling this Adventures in Watercolour. Whether I will ever revisit this place is up in the air for now. This is what I accomplished by paying attention to a little watercolour tutorial and using the wet on wet technique. Up to a point, of course and then did too many embellishments, but over all I think it’s not bad. The crooked border was an impulsive afterthought. And this one I’m happy with simply because it is recognizable as an elephant. So, Happy Middle of the Week Wednesday! I’m drinking that midnight eclipse coffee again and planning on getting many, many things done. Just have to decide what. Perhaps some pseudo LSD hallucination-like wet on wet abstract watercolour blended creations. Whoa. Brace yourself.
The verdict is still out on this one but its growing on me. I think with the right frame I might like it better. I have love/hate relationships with my art. What a luxury it is to have the time to let them hang around unfinished while I determine their fate.
We have had a busy week doing spring things, and enjoying a visit with good friends on their way home to northern Ontario after wintering in B.C. We were able to sit outside in the sunshine, go out for dinner, stay up too late, sleep in, shop and barbecue. We are just a bunch of old retired people living it up.
It’s Thursday, and garbage day, and the end of another week already! Time just keeps slipping away whether you’re paying attention or not. And that’s probably the most brilliant thing I’ll say today. I like to keep my expectations low.
Have a great Thursday!
