The October Watercolors

October...still a favorite month, in spite of a raging pandemic, raging racism, and a  raging president.

A month for beauty, for hope, and for this blog, a record, thanks to watercolors, more posts than any other since it began in 2009.

Thanks primarily goes also to beginning my holiday greeting card project, something that rescues me from doldrums, and in this year, depressing events.  

While I didn't accomplish a watercolor a day, there have been more than that accomplished. What you see here are the 20 posted on this blog, and the snow scenes are the greeting cards. All of them, except perhaps the Halloween Horror, are part of my effort to bring beauty and color into this negatively charged year.
