“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.” ― Pablo Picasso
Not only do I keep a daily diary and take a zillion pictures and write a daily blog, but sometimes I take a special photo and attempt a painting. Sometimes I write a poem to go along with a photo. Sometimes I do both.
My trip to Santa Fe was filled with inspirational sights and sounds, magical vistas, beautiful buildings, magnificent museums, and charming people. These were a couple of my favorite photos of the distant mountains. The layers of misty color were fabulous, begging to be a watercolor.
I enjoyed playing with the blank white paper until it rendered a happy likeness.
The clouds are fun. Some wet blue paint and a few dabs of a soft Kleenex tissue, voila! Clouds. (Don’t I have a messy palette?)
