Watercolour and marker

Barbara Muir © 2012I've just finished this little watercolour and it's rather
late at night. If I had infinite energy I'd keep painting
now. Steven fixed a beautiful, pewter, table clock on the weekend.
It's ticking, plus the big kitchen wall clock is thunking out
the seconds, and I feel hypnotised both by fatigue and
their insistent rhythm.
But if I could stay awake in the solemn quiet of the
night I'd paint the glorious Japanese Anemones
I brought in tonight -- standing out white against the darkness,
graceful beyond my imagination. I am human, and
glad that you are too. You'll understand I hope.
Here's a small watercolour of Nasturtiums and white
Cosmos. So little time, so much to paint.
Have a relishing-your-humanity-day.
