SECOND CHILDHOOD…

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).

THE MOUNTAIN II

You are never far from a mountain in New Zealand.  Ruapehu was lurking on the horizon as we travelled between Whanganui and Bulls yesterday.  Snow on the mountain and a misty sky meant it was difficult to capture, but I managed a couple of shots.  Loved the foreground in this one as well, with the yellow flowers and fences.
