“Practice loving yourself in all your dimensions, not just when you act or look good… and especially when you don’t.”
–SARK – from the book Glad No Matter What

The Patio – 6″ x 8″ Watercolor

This is painted from a photo reference I got from WetCanvas.  I just can’t remember who it was that shared it.  It was a very intimidating reference, so I simplified it some.  It was fun!  I enjoyed making things up as I went along.  🙂

SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) is an American author and illustrator of self-help books. Five of her sixteen books have been national bestsellers, and she has sold more than two million copies of her books.

SARK was born Susan Kennedy. At age ten, she became friends with an 80 year old neighbor, Mr. Boggs. When Mr. Boggs went to the hospital with a serious illness, he credited young Susan for helping him recover with the homemade cards and letters she sent every day for a month. No one else, he said, had visited or called during his illness. The experience inspired Kennedy to spend her life in some similar work.

    I am so pleased you are painting again….. I don’t notice this is simplified. I love the overlapping shapes in this that enhances the depth. I want to be there!
