A ShutterBug Explores ~ Paint Party Friday

'Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.'

~ Rainer Marie Rilke

Watching the boats on Cape Ann MA ~ 

  I am sure, we all are wondering about the New Year yet to come.

Do you have a plan for your 'journeying' through the year?

I once visited an artist teacher and she had made a diorama of a ship and suggested to her students that they think about their own quest and how they would travel on that quest and to make a replica of their planned transportation. When I created this sailboat in this watercolor, 'my journey' and the art teacher came to mind.

I am hoping for 'smooth sailings' for all of us. 

We are sharing with: Paint Party Friday.

 I love your comments. Thank You.

  2. Thanks Carol, a smooth sailing for us all in 2022 would be great. Happy New Year, hugs, Valerie

  3. Beautiful and love the colors. Love the teacher too. Smooth sailing is what we always want when we're out on the water.

    Have a fabulous day and a very happy New Year, Carol. Love and hugs to you both. ♥

  4. Beautiful story Carol, I love the idea of painting your quest. Your watercolour really tells that story as the child and pup watch the ship set sail.
