Drawing and painting, to create a mindful path through my days.

This figure was a total accident. I thought I'd dipped my brush in blue, to add to the sky of this imagined landscape.
The stroke was brown (oh!), so I turned it into a downward swoosh. After looking at it, I saw the back of a hooded figure. So I created the rest of him, with arm, legs, and hiking stick.
I kept him translucent--a swamp ghost.
These surprises are why I love watercolor!
