It was a sunny morning as I pulled in the driveway of my friend’s house. We had decided to have an art morning, where we would drink tea and create. I had just returned from Paris and was excited to try my hand at water lilies and my friend was excited to have some company during her regular design time. The sun was pouring in playfully through the window as the tea steeped. I broke out my brand new watercolor paint set and got right to work trying different flowers and landscapes. It was so relaxing to just sit and paint, chat and sip, pause and sketch. I felt like I was 5 again, why don’t I do this more often, I thought to myself. As I look back on this photo I remember having this great need to capture this amazing moment, where life is good and art is still a part of my life.
