The Weed

In my "GerAmyUm" story, she encounters a weed. A weed that grows fast and furious ... (dont' want to give the story away) I was delighted to find a weed growing in one of my potted Geraniums... Can you believe it? What are the odds, especially since my porch is on the second level. It grew sooooo fast.

So from this I roughed out a "sketch" of GerAmyUm with her weedy neighbor. I'm not finished and still working - it's funny, even weeds look pretty in watercolor.

You can see how I have my work cut out in making this weedy neighbor look a little less pretty and alot more annoying and pesky. Strange, I'm missing the color "pesky" and "annoying" from my pallette. I'll have to go mix it up now...

Yeah — funny how when you paint the weed, it just looks like a pretty little wild flower... perhaps that could be a point in your story — (though you probably already know the direction you want to take it, I'm sure) — that even the pesky things in life have a beauty of their own, or something like that...

I miss you! Let's have lunch soon!~
