Meditative watercolors/words

I created the watercolor art in this piece as a morning test. I’m learning how to use watercolors and I need to see how they work.

The spaces lend themselves to words. I’m going on another silent retreat, and since it is just a day retreat I wanted to prepare for it to get the most out of it. I don’t want to spend half the time feeling like I’ve just landed – I want to walk right in and make the shift.

I’ve been reading some of the handouts from the last retreats and really felt that this quote resonated with me right now, so I included it in the art. I like how the words are scattered – it adds to the quote.

This is another watercolor test, and when I looked closer I could see a lot that was suggested in it. I accented certain areas with gel pens – white and blue. This is my favorite so far.
