I wanted to use all the colors in their purest, most vibrant best, to show them in all their glory. So I decided that I'd take the opportunity to finally (FINALLY!!) put a mark in my new watercolor moleskine. I'd been avoiding it like the plague as I was afraid that I'd make a mistake and the pages don't come out. Eeek! Anyway, I got over my fear a couple days ago by just putting some pencil lines in the damn moleskine and *poof*, the fear disappeared. I painted my travel watercolor kit that I got as a lovely and generous birthday prezzie (a few months back) from Ellen, a good friend and fellow lover of all things art and art supplies related. Thank you Ellen. :o)
Coincidentally, I just bought a new bed ensemble as my old duvet cover set was looking seriously tired, the chocolate brown had faded to a wimpy dusty brown and the white was now a dirty cream color. So, off to the Home Sense store to find all new bedding!! Can you guess what colors are in my new set?? Oh, you have an idea, do you?? Who made you so smart, huh?? The comforter is decorated with HUGE artistically interpreted flowers in turquoise and fuchsia with leaves in many shades of lime. There are other vibrant colors in there too (orange and yellow daisies) but those main three favorites shine. I also got "eye searingly" lime and "poke your eye out" fuchsia sheets in a cotton sateen fabric. OMG, they're sooo soft! I'm in my glory! The bed now inspires me to go paint in COLOR. I love owning things that scream that an artist lives here, lol.
Anyway, here's my colorful submission for this week...

We'll talk soon, K? Yes?? Good! See you "tomorrow". ;o) Now I gotta go get some beauty sleep or my body's gonna object to daylight tomorrow morning!
