The Season of Magic

"Season of Magic," 5 x 7 watercolor greeting card

The
world needs 
some magic these days. 

Even Halloween, the day of fun for all ages, is falling victim to the pandemic. Next will be  the holiday season when a traditional time of togetherness will not be the same.

In America we're also under attack by blatant racism and violence, threats to our voting, and a political chaos that has everyone on edge, to say the least.

I can't help but yearn for the years as a youngster when it was a season of magic, of fun, of discovery, of family and love and peace and good will toward all people.

Today's watercolor is just that, a reaction to the insanity, some magic while playing with color, to lift my and your spirits in our journeys.
