Although my little red dragonfly is not a butterfly, one of my favorite things to paint, he inspired me nevertheless and reminds me of one of my favorite quotes. “They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods.” ― Edith Wharton I typically visualize images and colors that correspond with circumstances and emotions. I feel color more than I see it. For nearly a year, I wasn’t seeing color, and I certainly couldn’t feel it.
A Christmas Tree Kind of Life Years and rings, cut down, cut through; No future together, only memories of you. No longer planted in yesterday’s soil; Yet, firmly she still stands without toil. Branches once heavily laden with snow, Now decorated with an electrified glow. Friends and family–a garland of love, A single twinkling star hangs above. Though evergreen she will be nevermore; Cut down, decorated, she is Noël Evermore. #watercolor #archeswatercolorpaper #evergreen #ch
