Laundry Day Watercolor

“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

Laundry Day – 3″ x 7″  Watercolor on Masa

I had so much fun painting this little dude.  It’s another photo of a Belize sight from Li.  The fun thing about masa is the amazing texture you can get.  Personally, I am terrible at trees!  Masa gives me more texture than I would have been able to get, when left up to my own tree laziness.  I just don’t have the patience for trees.  They have all those pesky leaves!  😀

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.

    Where did my comment go?
    I said that this was my new favorite and that I even enlarged it and found that cute doggy peeking around the corner of the house and would have missed it had I not. This is beautiful color, whimsical and just plain fun!
