Watercolor Mixing~ Enjoyment!
That is the diagram of my current paint box.
Ceramic tray, a total pleasure,
though too heavy to take on on the road.
Such fun to play Let's Mix Some Greens with a friend...
Possibilities, willy nilly were all over my page
with no thought to composition.
So cutouts & collage created a bit of order.
Il fallait les mettre en valeur.
After such intense focus, greens called me
everywhere I looked!
Now, they are popping like mad outdoors,
minute by minute, vite, vite!
taking their place in the midst of winter grays.
A friend calls them:
"Emerging greens of spring..."
I think they are in a hurry to arrive in time for summer.
Soon they will take over.
In full bloom & without the gray contrasts,
they will be harder to distinguish.
Perhaps we New Englanders are like
the emerging greens of spring.
The gardeners are out, the bicyclers, the walkers.
On the sidewalk & in shops, livelier hello's & quicker smiles.
It was a long winter...
