The time of the crimson clover has passed in the hills above Chico.  But it was beautiful while it was blooming. 


I feature this page out of my watercolor journal because I'm interested in sharing a few things with you that don't really have anything to do with cards or art prints.  It's just that I love to paint.  I love to do lots of other things too, like spend time with family and loved ones.  But the creation of art is such a strong part of me that from childhood until today I have never been able to "not do it".  I take that back.  The first year after having lost my late husband I was unable to create.  I guess it was a response to my grief.  Otherwise, I've mostly drawn.  But now that I can watercolor I feel there is no limit to what I can create.  What I do with it is the subject of this post.


Beyond sharing art that is refined with Photoshop and Illustrator, I journal for my own joy.  It don't scan the pages,  I don't try to improve anything I just create as I learn and I enjoy the fun of it.  Today I want to share a page out of my journal that was entered in a few days from the end of April to the start of May.  This is what was blooming in our beautiful Chico hills.  What a show it was.  What a privilege to be able to take some blossoms to my desk and paint them.  What an adventure in learning.  What joy to my heart and what gratitude I experience to my Creator.
