Awash in nature's watercolor magic


Awash in the watercolor magic of nature... I have already filled my first little nature sketchbook...  With my obsessive personality, I find myself totally immersed right now in simple little sketches on gessoed book pages, watercolored and mounted in this old book.  

In most recent days, I have been sketching my ever-favorite birdies...  I collect pictures of these magical creatures and I love trying my hand at sketching them.  The birds are more of a challenge for me than the flowers... but I am forever drawn to them and all they symbolize.


The lesson of being the early bird is one taught me by my mother.


Listen to the music~ nothing like the sweet songs of the birds.










My final spread in the little nature sketchbook holds a thought I love...



As I write this post, I'm waiting for some summer sketches, freshly watercolored, to dry, so that I can do my pen and ink work on them...  A vintage book, in softest "Baby Jane blue" is waiting... ready to hold these fun, new summer dreams...  I hope your summer dreams all come true...
