|"When we need flowers," 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb Canson cold press|
Notice how someone's mood changes and smiles spontaneously break out when they get flowers?
This country needs some flowers right now.
Armed troops are guarding the capitol with the inauguration next week. The National Guard has been activated in many states as fear of violence rises. The pandemic is raging as more and more people are dying. Winter weather, and short days deepens the somber mood.
I wanted to paint flowers, probably to lift my mood, but I'm not a good flower painter, especially if you expect them to be beautiful in detail. But, I've discovered, I can help create an impressionistic approach.
So today's watercolor, just because, we all need some flowers right now.
