It took me four years to paint like Raphael,
Picasso - painted last night.
Watercolor on paper.
Sometimes, I just feel like copying what i see.
No big revelations
or color combinations.
(hey, that could be a song...)
I just paint what i see.
Don't you love the texture in this paper?
Paper makes all the difference in the world.
i can paint with dollar store paints,
but the paper needs to be top notch.
Especially for watercolors.
By the way, do you ever check the stats on your blog
to see how many visitors you've had in a day?
Well, i do.
Here are my stats for the day so far...
Isn't that amazing?
That technology allows us
not only to connect with one another
on this huge blue ball in the sky,
but to KNOW who we're connecting with!
When i first began to blog
i told myself it didn't make a difference
whether people visited or not.
That i was doing this for myself,
to get more comfortable
with putting my work out there.
But there's more to it now.
It does matter.
You do matter to me.
It was a strange feeling
when i first saw that i had visitors
from all over the world.
Something magical happens
when you realize you've just communicated
with someone in Taiwan,
or the UK
At least it's magical for me.
So thank you to all you lovely visitors,
whether you comment or not.
It melts my heart
to know that someone out there
may be inspired
by my words or my art.
I hope it's you.
Wishing everyone a great weekend,
wherever you happen to be in the world.
