Ribbons Of Paint

Sometimes I just like to swirl my paintbrush around with watercolor in my art journal. No thinking involved… just playing with color:


Yesterday, I didn’t have much time but I still wanted to DO something! So I created this haiku over my ribbons of paint:


I remember using scissors to create ribbons for wrapped gifts before store bought bows became popular. Β “Zip!!” And curls appeared like magic!

Wishing you a day withΒ happy memories!

Cheers! Β πŸ™‚
