Helen's Spring Bouquet

Teaching has such wonderful rewards. In addition to being able to help students discover their creativity, I am also being enriched. Recently, teaching watercolour in particular has connected me with the medium in a powerful way.

I am falling in love with it all over again.

I love the unexpected way the paint behaves; the wonderful translucency of the colours; and the sheer joy of moving paint around to see what happens when it is left to its own devices. I am discovering new colours on an almost daily basis.

This painting is from a photograph taken by my blogging friend Helen - Life is Good. Thank you for allowing me to use it.
