Day 27: Mixed Blessings

"Cardinal"  Watercolour, 6 x 12"

This piece kind of combines the robins of a few days ago with yesterday's snow scene.  Kind of. 

I was delighted that yesterday's "Into the Woods" was very well received, and I was encouraged to do "more like that." But I have discovered lately that it's easier said than done. I get too attached to the outcome.

The trick is to create each painting as if it doesn't matter, as if no one is ever going to see it. "Dance as if no one is watching." That's when magic can happen.
