Watercolor Painting


I spent an afternoon walking the gallery
and stopped for a moment to sit
on a simple bench looking out over a wide space,
where I could watch the artists working
on watercolor paintings.

Nina--I note most everyone is nearly speechless--and the few words the commenters here before have used are the ones I would use--WOW. Gorgeous. Lovely.

How glorious a post !! That brings word,imagery,and the rich ,intrinsic beauty of water and those who live on it into sharp perspective -- and with some humor too.

Monet saw such beauty and translated it to canvas -- you have done it with camera .

The metallic leaves on marbled water perfectly combine warm and cool. You have perfect illustrated a peaceful and well-balanced day.
