Brush to water…

Water to any imaginable color pooling onto the paper.

So as I paint, my mind runs away as to how the colors will speak.

Mixing the chosen pool of color from the painter’s tray.

Contrasting greens.

Rich purples.

Softened yellow hues.

Vibrant reds.

Fire oranges.

Brilliant Turkish blues.

First layer faint outlines begin to appear.

Dabbing color after color on that old towel.

Which has now become a ragged piece of art.

Building layer upon layer.

Humming birds are dancing with the day lilies and cardinal flowers.

Imagining this scene jumping off the paper.

Needing to hear their tiny wings buzzing.

While smelling the nectared flowers.

Escaping with brushed pools of colored water.

Makes one feel more than just alive.

    Your artwork is beautiful. I wish I had such talent. Thank you, Mary Anne 🙂


    1. Thank you Sue. I started taking watercolor classes 8 years ago and every since than I was hooked. It is very relaxing for me. Everyone has their unique talents and I enjoy how Weekly Prompts enables our creative gifts to shine.
