Watercolor

 

A few years in and many art fairs later

she noticed a theme  -

“you like watercolors.”

Yes, I do.

I hadn’t stopped in my appreciation

to find that particular commonality.

I’m glad she did.

I even took a class.

I couldn’t wait until the night

we painted landscapes

and seascapes.

I divided my paper in four

so that I could work on one picture

while part of another dried.

a drawback of that medium.

She looked at my red sun

setting over the ocean

and said,

“Don’t do that again.”

I haven’t.

I promise.

I haven’t painted again.
