Poinsettia with red tinfoil and plastic wrap
Watercolour and black marker on watercolour paper
8 x 10 inches
Barbara Muir © 2011I want to post something just so you won't think
I've forgotten you. Not so. But the pre-Christmas
run around, end of term, plus social occasions
have made it hard to get time to blog.
Tonight in a mall run, I ran into an art store, and
picked up some watercolour paper and a new pen.
The complexity of even the smallest Poinsettia
plant, and its punch wows me. So I quickly drew
a small sample that the cat has not destroyed (so
far) and did this watercolour. Merry whatever
holiday you celebrate. I hope that you are discovering
peace on earth. Steven says in 25 days it will all be
over -- it will be New Year's Eve and then 2012. Boy
can we pack those 25 days no matter who we are.
Wherever you are -- I wish you time to paint and draw.
Have an enjoying-the-rushing-about day.
