It is Monday, the last day of July. Outside I can hear birds singing their summer songs while the sky seems to be a pale watercolor wash of blues and grays, hinting at storms far out to sea.
The days have tumbled to the end of a month long celebration of World Watercolor Month. My Stillman & Birn sketchbook is nearly filled and is a delightful souvenir of this month’s adventures with watercolor, exploring old ideas and discovering a few new ones. As always, events such as this are fun and inspiring, especially when seeing so many from around the world participating in the creative joy of painting. I hope everyone else who participated had an enjoyable celebration and is ready for more watercolor adventures in the months ahead.
