Delicious Colors of Happiness.

Delicious Colors, 4" x 5" watercolor, 140 lb. Fabriano cold press paper
They had me at "turquoise."
Cherry. Lemon. Turquoise.
Those were the words that were the prompt for the January paint happy things daily challenge today from #worldwatercolorgroup.
I've sorta been going my own way on painting happy things every day this month, but clicked on the @Doodlewash website today for ideas.
How could I resist? Turquoise is a sacred stone, and several shades of color for anyone growing up in New Mexico or the Southwest. Remember that my first painting this month was "Turquoise Dawn Happiness" 24 days ago.
So why not? Delicious. Colors of Happiness.
