|This little scribble was done at a little park not far from|
Susie's house that we frequent often. We were "just chillin" and enjoying the
beautiful day outside. This was done in a small watercolor
journal that my BFF made for me.
I have found the most difficult thing about going to spend time with my BFF is in trying to figure out what I am going to take with me. Because we are heavily invested in SO many things, we have to check in with one another before leaving so we will know WHAT to bring and long ago figured out we can't take it all with us. Will we make jewelry (should I bring the beads?), will we work on a new or old quilt (should I bring fabric?), or will we knit/crochet (bring the yarn?)...?????? So much to think about.
But there is ALWAYS the ever present mini watercolor set. After years of purchasing a multitude of easels, pallets, watercolor tubes, sponges, brushes, watercolor additives and tools ad infinitude...which is not to mention all the papers and journals in every size, weight and texture imaginable, we have finally arrived at a tiny little kit we can usually fit into our medium sized purses. And although we HAVE traveled with the BIG stuff in tow, the heavy duty supplies now mostly live at home in the studio.
The Ibis showed up looking for a free meal. They were quite respectful actually and nothing like some of the birds who have joined our picnics over the years. These guys had absolutely no fear and hung around for a long visit so I had time to dash this off as a memento of that day.
We are all building memories every day... Do everything YOU can to make your memories happy ones. Take care of your friends and those you love. Carry them in your heart with a smile. And as always I say to you.....
