For years I have admired and purchased watercolor art. And I longed to take a watercolor class myself although now I am not sure what the longing was about! This spring I took a short course on-board a cruise ship. I thought maybe it was the instructor as it just did not ring my bell! So I decided to dabble more and take an online sketching/watercolor class from Jane LaFazio who is an outstanding water-colorist and colleague. Her work is gorgeous! She truly has the gift!
My brain however does not do depth perception. My husband has tried valiantly over the years to convince me to see it as if I am just stubbornly refusing to ignore it!!! I can see it; I just cannot replicate it. As much as I try to stretch myself by dabbling in other media, it is just not happening. The only stretch is a growing dislike of painting in watercolor! It is so contrary to the feeling of play and passion I get when painting cloth or designing textile art.
Since I have a few laid back weeks ahead of me I may dabble more…who knows! I have given myself permission though to move on if it continues to create such internal tension. Meanwhile hubby asked today if we could frame this first effort and hang it somewhere? LOL. How about the garage?!!!
