Afternoon at the Park

“To a happy person, the formula for happiness is quite simple:  Regardless of what happened early this morning, last week, or last year – or what may happen later this evening, tomorrow, or three years from now – now is where happiness lies.”
–Richard Carlson

Afternoon at the Park – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor

I know her legs are missing.   he he  This was a quick little watercolor postcard and try as I might, I could not figure out how to do her feet.  So… let’s just say she is sitting cross-legged, with her feet up on the bench.  🙂

The reference photo was by mbeckett at WetCanvas.
