I picked up a library book the other day called “Serendipity Quilts” by Susan Carlson. Flipping through the pages, a pattern really caught my eye
so I decided to try and re-create it in watercolor and ink in my art journal! Who needs fabric when you have beautiful pigments and a wonderful, hairy brush!
I didn’t trace the pattern in the book; instead, I freehanded it. So it’s not all perfect and symmetrical, but it’s ok. Life’s not perfect either. I may give this another try on watercolor paper. I think it would be fun to do a watercolor portrait of the sun and the moon. Ideally, I’d give Ms. Carlson’s idea my own twist, but we’ll see if my creative bones are working next time out.
Happy Tuesday! Enjoy summer while it’s here, you summer lovers! I’m looking forward to red, yellow and orange TREES. And the smell of the LEAVES. I can’t WAIT. Oh, and football! 😀 Can’t forget that. Ooh, apple cider! Yes, fall is my favorite season. And it’s calling me. 🙂 Shall we call it the Autumn Dance? We shall. Peace.
