Spring!! Every day is getting noticeably longer. Light and life are thankfully returning to what seemed to be a dark and dreary land. Spirits are lifting. Hope of green grass and late summer evenings is in the air. Hearts once again rejoice in the knowing that we have not been forsaken or even forgotten. The sun is returning to warm our hearts and the earth.
Pinch of Spice for this week: Every Spring with my Grade 3 class we would discover the fun of water colors. Now it’s your turn!! Find some water color paper… you might need to go the nearest art shop… years ago any kind of white paper seemed to do but I just discovered that the computer paper of today just doesn’t work. Then get a brush, some water color paints, wet your paper and let your soul express. Dab on some bright flowery colors…see what you can create. Try it on really wet paper letting the colors run down, try it on paper once the water has soaked in and let the colors spread out like a fireworks display. Try it once the paper has dried to paint in outlines or sharper contrasts. Let your spirit run wild. Let life express through you. You might just get hooked on the joy of showing your true colors through water color painting.
