Something Sunny

After finishing my colorful “Crazy Quilt” watercolor, I still had a bit of bright orange paint sitting on my palette. I like orange. It’s sunny. It’s cheerful. It’s uplifting.

That was just what I needed. When I walked past the table, that brilliant color beckoned me. I had to stop, pick up a brush, and start swiping bright orange across a sheet of paper.

Why not create a sunny scene?

I finished off the sky with a yellow, glowing sun, then added in an ocean. I toyed with the idea of putting in a few palm trees, but I was happy with only the sky and the sea, so I smiled and walked away.

I don’t know whether the sun’s coming up or going down, but either way, I hope my sunny scene brightens your day.

  1. This is ABSOLUTELY perfect and beautiful Judith! What a great result of freedom and using up that extra paint. Sometimes the best things come when and where we least expect!

    1. I know the feeling. I’ve temporarily given up trying to keep up LOL. It’s all I can manage to get a painting done and a post up each day. I’m hoping things will settle down and I’ll be able to start making my “regular rounds” again. I miss visiting all the art blogs. I hope all is well for you!
