Little Watercolor Trees
Little Zen Tree 2086
Did some sketching this morning. I feel a return to my roots (tree pun haha) coming on in the form of being more interested in nature art lately. I used to do almost nothing but and then at some point I got busy bored etc... then I got into other things (some good some bad) and now I'm getting too busy too bored with those things.
Everything's a cycle really. Eventually we all come back around to where we came from. Dust to dust sort of thing.

My aren't we a strange dark little tree? Well, I guess the world would be pretty boring without contrast. Thanks for being you, little tree.

In the year 2082
This was pretty fun, fast and turned out better than expected.
Random art for no damn good reason helps keep us on our toes, calls fourth spontaneity and forces us to pull from what we know and mash it into what we feel and then BOOM great art just...
Lil zen fer ya ;)

Painted this "American Robin" the other day. I stared it several months ago when I was longing for winter to be over. I often start these things and then leave them out on shelves in my office / studio for times when I don't know what I want to paint I just need to paint. Sorta like inspiration ready to go items... yeah I don't know. You get the idea.

O.K., Michigan, can we be done with winter now?
The white walkers came, everything is dead and we're all ready for spring now.

There are things in life you want that you don't get and there are things in life you want that you do get. In my opinion the path of happiness is choosing to dwell on the things you get that you want and spend as little time dwelling on the things you don't get as possible.
I painted this tree with a new (or new to me I should say) brand of watercolor paint. One of the things in my life I'm thankful for is the joy of painting. That's why I paint these trees because the gift of painting brings me great joy and so I like to start my day from the perspective of happiness and the appreciation of the good gifts I have in my life. The discovery of the new paint is a thing that makes me happy and has added to my joy in life.
