The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.

(I drew this in the fifth grade. I traced the outline and how I wanted to set this up. It was a cover page for a biography project that was really fun. 🙂 learn about Jacques Cousteau!) -Isa

Nature’s great masterpiece…

Elephant

Nature’s great masterpiece, an elephant, the only harmless great thing. -John Donne

Love will draw an elephant through a keyhole. -Samuel Richardson

Of all African animals, the elephant is the most difficult for man to live with, yet its passing – if this must come – seems the most tragic of all. I can watch elephants (and elephants alone) for hours at a time, for sooner or later the elephant will do something very strange such as mow grass with its toenails or draw the tusks from the rotted carcass of another elephant and carry them off into the bush. There is mystery behind that masked gray visage, and ancient life force, delicate and mighty, awesome and enchanted, commanding the silence ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks, great fires, and the sea.” ― Peter Matthiessen, The Tree Where Man Was Born

So, still going on with operation teach self to watercolor!

I seem to have difficulty controlling the thickness of the paint I use, also of the brush. I just need a bit of getting used to.

I hope everyone’s having a great new years so far! I plan on doing an award nomination thing soon, given by Evi!

Has anyone else noticed that everyone is going self hosted? Chloe brought it up, ans she says she’s going to go self hosted too!

Well, have a great week, happy Friday!

“There’s nothin…

“There’s nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater,you realize that you’ve been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.”
― Dave Barry
