Topic #37--"Wind" Entry

From Tricia Scott!:

Tonight I sat with my journal upon my lap, a cup of water and my watercolors on the coffee table watching American Idol with my hubby and daughter. The wind is blowing pretty hard outside tonight which helped to inspire me despite the distractions of TV and laughing family.
The watercolors are fun and they are a new plaything. I have a book from long ago on the basics and I will pull that out soon and have a look though it is fun just to play and not worry if I am doing it right.
Next I added an image of a birdie (of course) and a vintage boy with a sweet lonesome face. I hope the circle behind his head looks like the moon-it came to be there because I messed up his crown. Oil pastels and charcoal were rubbed around here and there.
I found the quote and thought it fit as though I had planned it. Love it when that happens!
"And love went by upon the wind as though it had not been." Robert Graves
