As I get older, I find myself being more selective about who I spend time with, and less compelled to be everyone’s best friend. I am even ok with the knowledge that there are people who will not like me. And it’s not my fault -in fact, it has nothing to do with me, but everything to do with them. I saw this quote and loved it immediately…. Re the painting, it’s a watercolor I did on my flight back from the West Coast. I love painting on the plane as I forces me to focus on the few materials I have, watercolor crayon, paper and my brush. This is the first time I am using Arches Watercolor paper and I have to say, I LOVE IT!!!!! It was so fun playing with the watercolor, making it drip, the colors just seem to come alive on the paper! I truly believe that paper is the most important ingredient in a painting. Glad I tried it! Will be investing in those paper from now on… it is just more fun!
