CAED Day 25: The Art Of Playing With Watercolors

Playful Butterflies

Yesterday I realized that it is not just a lack of time that stands in the way of my painting more often.  There is also a certain amount of courage a blank canvas seems to demand of me, a level of energy and commitment that's not always easy to summon.  Or maybe that's just me, taking things too seriously again.

It's easier for me to remember that art is supposed to be fun when I paint on paper with watercolors.  Everyone plays with watercolors as a kid, right?  I sure did and it still does for me now what it did then: gives that shy, serious girl within me a break from her worries and a way to express herself.

So yes, art takes courage but it gives it back too.
