Sail away with me

Ship

This was a very quick watercolour that I painted a few months back. It was the first time I’d picked up a brush in a very long time and I just wanted to play with the colour. I only had a very simple idea in mind and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

As soon as it was finished though, Mr L claimed it as a gift. It’s a good job I was planning to give it to him anyway!  i was flattered that he was determined to have it though.

Daily Prompt: Life After Blogs - Rise Again

My response to life after blogs Daily Prompt. What do I do when I’m not writing? I paint or draw, I take photos and go for long walks. I live in constant amusement from my cats and every day I feel thankful for my amazing family and collection of friends. I’ve been a very fortunate person – but still. Life? Life is getting back up again. It’s realizing that every day is different and that the world changes. Tomorrow is a new day, and unless you can predict the future, (if so, please tell me the lottery numbers!) there is always hope.

The image is a photograph of a piece of acrylic art I created a few years ago. It started as a photo edit of a sunset. I created a pheonix from some clouds. I liked the photo so much that I painted it onto a small canvas.
