I got a new water color paint set. Turns out I like painting enough and I was encouraged by a friend with a generous gift of brushes and a marine life water color book. The same friend also clued me in to making a paint key/legend. Well, first I made a poor design decision on how to structure the key and then failed to follow the design (further indicating poor design). I also had to reconcile my desire for perfection with lack of a ruler, lack of patience, and lack of necessity for the outcome to be perfect. So what I intended to be a relaxing afternoon activity turned out to be a bit frustrating. BUT, I’m glad I persevered and now I have this legend to guide me on what colors to pick when I paint. Now that it’s done, it looks pretty to me, not surprising that I also love opera warming up cacophonous sound.
