Favorite Place in the World (2020) Watercolor 10x10"
The Idyllic Scenes Collection is a series of watercolor paintings featuring cute animals in fun and lighthearted settings.
Each piece has a little story that celebrates aspects of life - friendship, a sense of peace, a feeling of abundance that doesn't necessarily come from material things; and also bringing awareness to endangered wildlife.
It all started one afternoon in mid-July 2020, during the covid-19 pandemic.
I was doing my daily watercolor painting exercise at home by drawing whatever came to mind for the day's prompt.
Until then, each painting had been different, unconnected and random. One day I drew a fox and a cat playing on a seesaw. After that, a kangaroo flying a kite, and so on.
By creating these paintings, I created a space for myself to feel joy even during the covid-19 pandemic. I hope that they also bring you and your home happiness and respite from this busy and crazy world!
