I’m having so much fun playing with watercolors, even if that mandarin looks a bit squashed.  I’m discovering that things don’t have to be perfect to be enjoyed…

and this is the beginning washes for another one I’ve started – lots more to go for this Kaipara fence-line.

Still plugging away with this one – learning patience (and not to get too hung-up on the housework).

  1. Maureen,
    Your post inspired me… the best thing is that you are having FUN and that progress will come down the line as you practice. I think it’s brilliant that your painting journey started with a squashed mandarin! 🙂

  2. The still life (with squished mandarin!) is my favourite , Maureen – I like it’s looseness.

    It’s apt that I’m seeing your post this morning after joining an art group last night and painting for the first time in two years. You are right, we should paint for fun and for ourselves first – and hey, anything is better than housework! 😄😄😄
