Winter. Spring.  Tension.

What is outside.  What I feel inside.  Tension.

Whites and greys.  Colour.  Tension.

Where there is tension, there’s interplay. I need to play. Watercolour + Ink.

PS 4 watercolour grid

Playing with the 4 Project Spectrum colours wet-in-wet was a whole lot of stress-busting fun. Adding the freeform ink doodles on top felt like I was rediscovering myself as an artist, hearing the call of what drew me to pursue it in the first place.


That really looks like the way I feel right now. Whimsical, bright, ungoverned. Bold. There is a meadow’s worth of flowers waiting to burst inside me.  Seeds, possibility, life.

    It’s good to see how other people are coping. I’m mostly knitting. Spring fever and my responsibilities are making me feel like my skin is just barely containing spring thunderstorms. I want to go running down the street at top speed with my arms flung out, but since every sidewalk is a sheet of ice, I feel…hemmed.

    gorgeous. Quick question: what materials do you use for this? I’d like to have these kind of art supplies on hand for the kiddos (& maybe myself!). I’ve subscribed to the post so you can just post the response her or e-mail me privately if you prefer.
