I have been diving into my watercolor journal by creating "mood paintings" lately. I'm not always sure what I'm setting out to paint. I begin painting and then just see where it goes. I just completed this new painting "Secret Garden". I believe everyone should have their own little paradise somewhere in their home. It's nice to have a place to go and relax, read, have breakfast or visit with a friend. It doesn't have to be extravagant, it just needs to be a space where you feel comfortable. For me something that is visually pleasing is a must. Spring is just around the corner and I look forward to the days I can sit on my patio surrounded by Geranium's. Geranium's are one of the easiest flowers to care for. I like to put them in big pots surrounding the sitting area of my patio. They don't require very much water and they love the blazing hot sun which we get a lot of in Georgia. In the fall I had a tree house built for my girls and the tree has just started to bloom with tiny pink flowers. It looks like the charming little house I had sketched out for the builder to go by. Now with the blossoms my vision has come to life.
