This was a busy weekend. Many things are swirling around in my head. I met some interesting new people and saw some beautiful encaustic painting. I had to drop out of my watercolour class, where we were going to paint snow, and switch to mixed media. I love mixed-media, my daughter would say "obvay" for obviously. But I also love love love watercolour so I'm a bit torn about that. I was also strongly reminded of what it is like to be twentyish and in love...or not in love... and all the problems with being twentyish. That reminded me of the Pepsi commercial where they ask, "Is there anything else youthful you'd like to experience?". When I think back to all the gut wrenching relationships I had back then I think, "I'd rather have a Pepsi", and I don't even like Pepsi!
I painted the picture above , which is a combination of some of my weekend; lost love, watercolour and Illustration Friday's new word, "wilderness"! Hope you like it.
