When it's time to play

"Playtime," 5 x 7 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white paper
"Playful." 
That was Doodlewash's #WorldWatercolorMonth prompt for today.
So appropriate because of the July 4 holiday, and even more this year as people struggle in social distancing to fight the viruses of pandemic, racism, political chaos and hatred.
Where would you like to be? I've had enough "alone" time these past three months...what I'd like to do is find a secluded beach, warm sunshine, loved ones and a dog, and ...you get the picture.
It's time to play, safely, intelligently, but oh we need to be playful to remind  and bolster ourselves of the basic humanity we're missing, that holds us together.
How do you paint ""Playful?" Perhaps, people having fun together.
Thus today's #watercolor,  "Playful."
