"I mused for a few moments on the question of which was worse,
to lead a life so boring that you are easily enchanted,
or a life so full of stimulus that you are easily bored."
— Bill Bryson
This week, spurred by our map-making, I opened up the super-sized 18x24" watercolor journal and sketched a little of everything, shapes, buildings, suns, boxes, doodles. Then I watercolored, added more doodles, more watercolor. The bright colors and thin black lines make me happy.
I'm frustrated with my photos the last week or two. I played around with my camera settings and upload settings, screwed a few things up. Or maybe it's my eyes. Or my monitor. Or the harsh angle of the summer sun. Or bad camera karma. Or weariness. Or all of the above. Anyhow, I think I have to go back to the defaults on the camera and start fresh. Aargh. Double aaaaargh. Where's that magic wand when you need it?
Check out the watercolor doodles from last fall.
