a choice... a journey not a destination... different things to different people... better than sorrow

In my perusing of blogs I followed links and landed on Inspire Me Thursday which has a weekly art challenge. This weeks is to do a watercolor. The only thing I've done in the past with watercolors was with Hero flower stamps which I may post another time. I've decided it's time to stretch my wings so I took up the challenge and painted the above trees. It was an interesting process since I didn't really know what I was doing. I started with making an abstract background with three colors and then added the trees. Just kept playing with it and still wasn't happy because it looked cold and inspiration hit and I warmed it up with some spatters. I think I actually like it. Hope you all enjoy my first attempt at painting.
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
