LIFE HAS THORNS BUT...


A long, thin painting (watercolor) on TerraSkin paper. 

Love the way the color separates, granulates, changes as it dries on this stuff.  


This is:  Life as a Flower


(Life begins so green and fresh, so clean and new...then changes and sometimes there are thorns but look at the end result:  hopefully it's beautiful!).









I got up at 7:30 this morning, went downstairs and painted this.  Are the migraines over?  So far, so good - almost one week without and I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel and hope it's not an oncoming train! ha ha


Closer view so you can see the colors and how they flow.


Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

This is beautiful! I recently tried the terraskin stone paper and enjoyed it. Is this stone paper too?

Thanks so much, Elizabeth :)

Thanks, Meera. Yes, this is the stone paper (not sure why it's called TerraSkin and not TerraStone?)
