Water Horse – 1

This is the beginning of a watercolor painting. I’m trying to figure out which patterns in the water I want to pick up and ignore. I get headaches trying to figure water out. I did the same thing with rocks, trees, clouds, and people. I know I can get water too. I’ve drawn horses since I was 5-6 years old. I would watch Mom paint and think, “I could do that better, hers are too stiff.”  Mom would ask me to critique her paintings so it was a natural progression for me to try to put my visions on paper too. I’m still working on getting it right. I don’t think I will ever be able to catch what I see exactly, but it’s so much fun trying and so much pain. Kind of like long distance running or sitting in meditation for an hour without moving. You get twitchy, thoughts stray, concentration flags, you have doubts, hit walls, move past all those obstacles and finish feeling great!Waterhorse

    I need to add some food blogs to Scratch Living. I’m kind of a one project at a time kind of person. When I start creating art, all I want to think about it the project I am working on. I’m still cooking and trying out different recipes using food grown from my garden and bought in bulk. But I did a lot of cooking whilst canning. All I have to do is pop a mason jar and mix ingredients, dinner is done! Cooking and canning like a crazy person, I don’t have to cook to much during the winter. Works out perfectly when I start getting single minded on projects.

    We haven’t gone to a market for two months. We just went shopping for my Husband, he has to have his cheese, chocolate, and special bread once in a while. I could totally live off of what I can grow if it was just me. We shouldn’t have to go shopping for another couple months.
