Anyone who knows me, knows that I love biscuits (buttermilk biscuits, cheddar biscuits, jalapeƱo cheddar biscuits!).  When I travel, I will search out the best breakfast places based on their biscuits.  At fast food restaurants I tend to make little sandwiches out of biscuits and chicken fingers or simply slather them in butter and honey.  Yum!!

Practicing Flowers

Sometimes things do not work out the way you want them to do.  Or you feel like you have limited control over your situation.  The uncertainty of Life can be frustrating.  Watercolors are like that too.  And by going with the flow, accepting the things you cannot control, you can achieve a modicum of peace.  Just let the water flow where it will.  

Lately, I have been practicing flowers using two of Jean Haines amazing books: Painting Yourself Calm and Atmospheric Flowers in Watercolor: Painting with Energy and Life.  The results have not always been. . .good.  The experience, however, has been satisfying. 

Below is a card I made.  Getting there took a lot of work. 

"We shall not cease from exploration.  
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."

Initially, I was going to put a border around each panel but never got around to it.  Decided to post it today since it does feel rather Spring-y today.
