I received a SuPeR AwEsOmE surprise in the mail yesterday. Christine Brooks sent me an Arteza watercolor sketchpad. WOW! Thank you, Christine!
There is a wonderful texture to the paper. Different from the Artist’s Touch I mentioned last month. Different, but similar. I like it. I lifted the cloud on the left. With a damp brush. Good to know that is possible on this paper.
The light on the clouds was so brilliant, it lit up the room. The clouds were actually “dripping down” like thick, wet paint. I am going to try and paint it. Not sure I know how. It will be fun trying though.
I did manage something like it years ago, but don’t ask me what I did. LOL.
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” A.A. Milne
Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity. It makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie
You have some nice friends 😊

What a nice surprise from Christine!. I really like the colours in your cactus, especially the pink – wow!
Ha ha, that is pink gouache. And yes, it is BRIGHT! Glad you enjoyed it Val 🙂
Sheila, this cactus totally captures my heart! I just love the up-close-and-personal of it (especially when I feel as though everything else in my life has to be held at a distance!). This has a whimsical appeal. Brava!
Hugs Dear Dotty 🙂 So glad you enjoyed it! Stay well my friend. 🙂
