Years ago, I used watercolor to paint this sunflower.
Now that I am at home all the time I have decided to revisit the stacks of artwork I have around my house.
Who knows? I might be a Van Gogh. Well, maybe not a Van Gogh. But, with all the time on my hands I might well be able to perfect my artistic skills and at least. . .I don’t think I will ever be Van Gogh, but I am having fun with returning to my artwork.
I guess with staying home I have decided to make the best of a bad situation and develop my creative skills in both art and writing. I have also found some great websites on how to learn to speak French. I have a notebook that I am taking my French notes in and I am listening to websites in French and reading in French as much as possible.
I am looking ahead to when I can go to France and visit Monet’s garden. I love flowers and Monet’s garden is absolutely exquisite. I have only seen it in photos, but I plan to go as soon as possible. I will take my sketch pad and spend several days just enjoying France.
All this we are going through right now will eventually pass.
There is always tomorrow; there is always hope.
There will always be sunflowers.
Go out tomorrow morning and draw one.
That’s what I plan to do.

Thank you, Mercy. My art and my writing is what has kept me sane during these past weeks. It helps with my creative energy and calms my anxiety. I just pray that this quarantine passes quickly. I hope all is well with you.
