white water flowers in watercolor


Last summer on one of our fishing forays out into the surrounding country-side we headed north up towards Costilla, New Mexico.  This is a wonderful drive along the western side our San de Cristo mountain range. When we come upon the Costilla (rib) turn-off and head due east, straight into the mountains themselves. We follow Costilla Creek in all it’s rich and moist greenness compared to where we live up on a high and dry, piñon covered mesa range of the mountains.  My honey fishes while I photograph anything and everything I think is beautiful.  One little spot next to the creek was so green and cool and smelled so sweet….

I’ve posted this somewhere because I love it so, but for now it inspired my still feeling under the weather brain.

so I doodled and played with three (tres) which turned into four (quatro) white (blanco) water (aqua) flowers (flores)

I used Paynes Grey, cadmium yellow pale, sap green and viridian hue green, all Winsor Newton colors.

 

Today is/was my Grandmothers birthday.  She always remembered mine because I was born two days before hers.  It was one of our special things that she shared with just me.  I miss Grandma Hogard (my father’s mother).

    Beautiful flowers and beautiful memories. It can be bittersweet to recall those we’ve lost, but it’s always more sweet than bitter. Happy birthday to your grandmother, and happy memories to you!

    Oh true your words Linda. I have many very sweet wonderful memories of her and feel blessed that she was/is my grandmother. My only regret is not paying more attention. She wrote me a book of memories that I’m sharing with my sister right now, but maybe it’s time to pull that back and make something more out of it for her and my father, who is her son. I sure hope they are loving being together again.
    I hope your new year is coming along with wonder and joy,
    much love my friend
