The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
I love collecting random finds- mostly from nature, but I do have a collection of mangled metal things, having lived in "the city" all my life. I love looking for the unexpected, the beautiful in little things that have been dropped or have fallen to the ground. Nature leaves us such lovely gifts. I hope we can continue to find ways to be more present and alert to notice and enjoy these unique finds.
This painting: I am constantly drawn to both chaotic, lively slashes of colour, texture and imagery, and to paintings that minimally share such simple beauty. Here is one where I was trying the later. I have been enjoying my Senelier watercolours and will soon be dabbling in Daniel Smith watercolours, too. So little time, so many beautiful supplies to test out!
Enjoy the little magic things this week!
