Can you feel the sheer joy and happiness radiating from Holiday?
I painted it from memory and a tiny watercolor postcard I painted during the first few days of my residency in France. It captures what I went to France to discover ~ new direction for my art and heart.
How I got to that cafe table in the south of France with the love of my life ~ is still amazing to me.
When I applied for my residency in France, I knew in my heart I’d completed what I’d been doing for the last ten years. Painting earth, sky, water on the coastal marsh near my home in Virginia since 2000 ~ I was ready for something new!
But what else would I paint?
I had no clue. After painting landscapes for forty years, I never dreamt of painting something like this!
My little story, Embrace the Mountain, explains what fueled my passion for painting.
A tiny snippet from my dream journal exposes how uch a tiny watercolor postcard set my dreams to life.
