Watercolour: Something RIGHT

My first creation of the new year! I don't have a lot of goals this year, art-wise, but what I'm trying to do is just start and then let the art talk to me. Whatever it wants to be, wherever it wants to go, that kind of thing. When I started the background I didn't know where it was going, all I knew was that I was directionless and that if I didn't just start then I'd not do anything and I really wanted to. The good news is that in creating this I came up with an idea for another piece, which I'm thankful for because making this was not easy. My lungs are so fragile they didn't appreciate the silver Sharpie at all. And outlining it was even worse. I'm honestly completely sick of crap like this. I just want to be left alone to create!

I hope you like this piece in my watercolour journal and thanks for joining me this Watercolour Wednesday!


  1. Oh Aeryn, don't be discouraged. You have done very well with what you have to work with. I mean as far as being so ill. I know you may not always feel like doing ANYTHING, but finding pleasure and fulfillment wherever and whenever you can is what will keep you going. Your creative spirit is never-ending. You do beautiful work, and when your lungs kick your butt, stand up straight and tell them, you're not having any part of it! You are an inspiration to me and I'm sure to many out here in Blogland, So don't give up and keep feeding our souls to aspire to be as talented as you are. I struggle so badly with water coloring and you have given me the will to try it again! Thanks my dear. Hugs, Maureen

    1. Thank you, I'm glad you like it. And thank you so much for the support. I think people are mis-interpreting the words as a comment on my ability to art or something, and that's not what they mean, but I guess art is subjective so people will see what they want to see. Obviously I did just finish this piece instead of stopping when the pen hurt my lungs, so.. yeah. I'd never stop just because of something like that, I'd get nowhere.
