With apologies. It’s started. If I don’t start making Christmas cards they won’t get done. I know it isn’t even Halloween yet. No need to remind me of that fact. But a busy working person has to do what she can when she can. Here are the first of my 2019 crop.
Another rainy day has me thinking about Autumn. It seems like yesterday I was planning days around sunshine and warmth. Swimming and boating. Lazy days relaxing by the lake. Now here I am planning how, where and when to put our summer toys away for another season. Pack up our belongings and winterize. Prepare for the cold snowy days and nights of Winter. Because that is what comes after Autumn. No wonder I don’t care for Autumn. It signals what is to come. Good thing there is a bright side. I love autumnal colors.
Day 30 World Watercolor Month. The prompt Wild Things. Recently we got our cute quotient when mama mallard brought her seven wee fuzzy babes for a visit. How something that tiny can survive in the wild amazes. Especially when mama is trying to raise them in a very busy section of Shuswap Lake. The perils are numerous.
Day 27 World Watercolor Month. The prompt Fruits. I am an apple a day kind of person. Ergo this bright shiny Pink Lady is my watercolor for you on day 27. I can’t believe this annual month long celebration of painting the world is rapidly coming to an end. Thanks again to Charlie O’Shields at doodlewash.com for coming up with this fantastic idea and to the Zebra Foundation for getting art supplies to children. Remember to get your swag from the Word Watercolor Month shop. All proceeds go to the Zebra Foundation.
Day 22 World Watercolor Month. The prompt Rainforest. Why not a happy smiley frog? Like other places in this world of ours the rainforests are in danger along with all the creatures that live there. It is imperative that we all become aware of our environment.
