hello heart, hello monday

I’ve been trying to listen to my heart lately. One thing my heart has been wanting is to watercolor. I don’t really know how but I’m doing it anyway. It’s fun and creative and it feels good. For the watercolor below, I used brush to wet the paper, then watercolored on wet paper. I was mesmerized watching the paint bleed and blur.
