I have decided I really prefer the idea of typed text rather than hand-lettered. The watercolors are already very fluid and, uh, imperfect, and when I try to hand-letter, the whole thing just feels sloppy to me.
Also, I’ve tried a few of these watercolor background with black silhouette simple drawings on them, and they are fun! Thank you, Pinterest, for showing me other people’s ideas I can try my hand at.
I wrote this one thinking how it is that there is always beauty to find, even in the absolutely worst situations. I have so much to be thankful for, and I try to remember how precious our one life is. This watercolor started out as just a color wash exercise, and then the little tree looked quite spooky, but then the poem ended up creeping toward beauty, as the world does:>)
