Sunflowers and Hope

WIN_20190916_14_41_49_Pro (2)_LI

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.
