watercoloring

Sandy, over at the Ideas of Inspiration blog, announced that our trigger for the rest of the month was the letter "C." As many of you know, I've been itching and thinking of doctors for the past few weeks... having a hard time concentrating on anything else! It wasn't until Friday morning, when I started to feel normal. So I made up my mind, right then and there, to find a good word for my trigger.

I sat down in front of my COMPUTER, with my CUP of COFFEE.I thought of all my Etsyblogger friends who love animals, especially CATS.
What a nice day...

I had taken the day off, and it was actually warming up outside.

I jumped in my CAR, and headed out to get some CHORES done. I heard it was going to snow this weekend. My poor yellow daisies! Everything was going to be white and drab...
I was going to miss all the new color. COLOR!!

I had a plan. I've been thinking about buying some watercolors, and this was the perfect opportunity. What could be a better way of describing color, than with watercolors?

It wasn't until Sunday morning, that I got up the courage and set myself up a workplace. First, I painted my snow covered yellow daisies. That was a total flop...

So I attempted some landscapes, looking into my mind's eye. Funny thing about a landscape... you can leave it the way you drew it, or you can flip it upside down, and get another view.





At the end of the day, I decided to just fool around with different colors, something I love to do. After finishing a picture, I scanned and cropped it, making a bright border to finish it off.

OK, COMPUTER has to be another favorite word, starting with the letter "C"!

What a great way to find inspiration! I like the fact that you are trying something new. I am so intimidated by watercolor. Nice job and terrific attitude!!
