Watercolors in the woods
6 x 4 inches, pencil and watercolor on paper. My son Max took me and the dog on a long walk... through our backyard, over the neighboring hills, up several creeks, and down a seemingly bottomless ravine. We talked about Spring, rebirth, Palm Sunday, the equinox, sunstorms, icecaps, magnetic fields, and the ozone.
Before the walk, a part of me felt I should be in the studio- but now I feel like the day is magnificent and how lucky I am to live in the country and be healthy and alive. My folks come home from their long trip abroad this afternoon, and my husband has just departed on a week long roadtrip, with a trailor full of motorcycles.
