Well we’re just about halfway through this amazing month of watercolor and I hope everyone is having a fantastic time! When I hit mid-month my mind starts to wander a bit so today’s prompt of “daydreaming” is very fitting. I truly wasn’t sure what to paint today and then we were talking about what to have for dinner tonight and how last night’s dinner was so delicious, that we should repeat it. Grilled homemade tortillas, avocado slices, beans, greens, tomatoes, and spices with an egg on top. Since it was impossible to get out of my head at that point, I just went ahead and put it down on paper. It really was quite yummy, but was, of course, served with a glass wine, not pictured here because I couldn’t fit it on the page. This one was done in a super fast and loose style and it felt good to just scribble and splash paint around. My favorite part about painting is just having fun with it and letting things turn out as they may as I make a little something each and every day. My favorite part of the evening is dinner, so combining these two loves only makes good sense.
Actually, we may mix things up a bit this evening and do fish tacos instead. Basically everything pictured here, minus the egg, plus a slice of fish. I’ve no idea why I feel the need to share my menu with you now, but today has been a lovely and lazy day with not much more to report. Those are my favorite days. The ones that just sort of float by and happen slowly with no plans, and no need to even look at the clock. I’m sure there are a million things I should be doing, but I’m conveniently forgetting them at the moment. Whatever they are, they can wait one day while I indulge myself by doing whatever I like. I hope all of you are enjoying a fabulous weekend and have also managed to make some time, just for you, to do the things that make you smile most.
Today, I once again have something for all of you! These gifts are starting to repeat themselves, so if you’ve already gotten one, then you won’t be eligible to receive one today. I have a Joe Miller Travel Painter Palette with a round sable brush, for the first 9 people who add the comment “Paint What You Love!” below to let me know they want one. A cheer that should always be at the forefront of our minds each time we sit down in front of that blank page. Be sure to check my reply as I’ll be asking for your address if you haven’t received a sample yet. If you think you might have gotten one, check back through my posts for this month to see if I asked you for your address. And with that, I’ll leave you for a bit to relax and enjoy the evening. Sometimes, the best times are those that are the simplest. A perfect evening can come from anything that you truly enjoy, even if it’s just last night’s dinner.
