What's a better thing to do on a rainy morning than paint a watercolor? As long you don't do it outside it's just about perfect. ;-) The rain on the roof lends itself to a little mindless relaxation and my little bouquet of pink ranunculus remind me that all this rain will bring green grass as beautiful blooms.
I'm thinking of doing a series of monograms. If I don't get bored with it, as I do tend to want to move on to something different relatively quickly. A little wren will be perched inside the "D". We have a wren who nests on our front porch in a window box, so this will be for her.
This is my water cup. I always used an old jelly jar or something I could just throw away when I was done but one day I just thought, why am I looking at this ugly jelly jar with a half peeled label. It was time for something pretty. This is a little teacup that I never used. Mostly because I drink more tea than what this holds. It also was too pretty to leave in a cupboard where it was never seen.
They may be on their last legs, but I've had them for an entire week. Not bad for grocery store flowers. I once bought a bouquet of pink carnations and they lasted 3 weeks! I love ranunculus, they look like a rose made of poppy petals.
Thanks for sharing my morning, now it's off to the shower and time to get ready for my real job. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
