Watercolor Gerbera Daisies

Today, I was barely awake, and making my first cup of coffee when I decided to set up the watercolors. There were plenty of things I should have been doing – cleaning the kitchen, laundry, the list goes on. But I decided to ignore all of that stuff and start painting. I decided to try painting my favorite flower the gerbera daisy again. I painted one a few days ago and immediately saw what was wrong with it. But I did get some nice feedback on it (thank you!), which motivated me to try again.

Not quite awake, I almost took a swig of the dirty water, mistaking it for my coffee! But I got into a groove and as I worked, I felt more and more satisfied. It was hard to stop putting finishing touches on them! But finally I said, they are done. I had that “Mom! Look what I made!” feeling. What a great way to start the day. The orange one is my favorite.
