I want to backtrack to the winter when I created “Blessings”, a series of six watercolors. They are on the Grace art page, but I was busy at the time and didn’t write about the amazing thing I saw on my studio window that sparked the work.
Sometimes it’s difficult to jump start the work. In this case it was a dreary January day with lots of snow outside but it started to rain. Sitting mindlessly, staring out I noticed a formation of raindrops streaming down in an elongated triangle. It was mesmerizing, and the phrase came to mind that it was a blessing from above. See the video below with one of the bamboo forests beyond. I am always appreciative of moisture after living in Colorado for many years.
I used the paints from my third 3 primary colors palette, and with a permanent pen made dots to represent the phenomenon. It was a true pleasure to pursue the idea. See them for the first time at the Spring Into Art Open Studio, April 23.
