Bubbles & Roosters – September 18, 2009

“Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.”
– Dag Hammarskjöld

Bubbles

4″ x 6″ Watercolor

Playing with my new St. Petersburg set of Yarka watercolors. I got this idea from Leslie White’s blog, when she had a link to June Malone’s blog. I just love artists! June’s example was way more colorful and skilled, as was Leslie’s, but I still had fun and I got to try out my new colors.

About Dag Hammarskjöld

Dag Hammarskjöld, a Noble Peace Prize winner, was a diplomat who strengthened the United Nations’ peacekeeping mission. Born in Sweden in 1905, he followed his father’s footsteps into national government, where he coined the term “planned economy” before becoming a delegate to the U.N. and a two-time secretary-general. He negotiated the release of Americans captured by the Chinese in the Korean War, worked to resolve the Suez Canal crisis, and was on a mission to the Congo when his plane crashed in 1961, killing all aboard.

    I liked both your bubbles and roosters and thanks for the link, Beth. Your Yarka bubbles are very colorful. Let me know how Yarka works for you.

      Thanks, Leslie! I got half off on the Yarka set, so it was worth a try. I’ll know more after I’ve played with them a while. I’m taking them to Wyoming and Idaho next week, so they should get a workout.
